Mike Press Adelaide Hills Single Vineyard Merlot

An elegant take on Mike Press Merlot, an attractive amalgam of tangy red cherry and cranberry fruit and mixed spice, supported by dark chocolate oak (French and American) and firm, fine, grippy tannin structure. At 14.8%, the alcohol dominates a little on the finish, leaving it a touch hot, but it gets away with it, thanks to lively fruit and tart acidity. Best price direct.
