2018 Little Frances Merlot
Merlot may have had a bad rap in recent years, but don’t let that deter you from this concentrated and vibrant rendition.
Grown at 600m elevation in shallow soil over impenetrable rock - these demure vines provided small clusters and tiny berries bursting with flavour. Red raspberry, sweet blueberry and cranberry acidity keep this deep purple wine salivating and fresh. Fine tannin provides a taut, nervy structure through the wine simultaneously offering delicacy and audacious power.
