2008 Mt Buff Alpine Valley Merlot
12 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka ReviewFrom the cool slopes of Mt Buffalo (yes, the ski resort Mt Buffalo) this is a such a surprisingly savoury and well-built wine. We had our doubts (Merlot? From a ski field? Crazy talk!) but this is ripe, choc minty and genuinely full flavoured. A really surprising well built and impressive medium bodied cool climate Merlot.
Winemaker's NoteAppearance: Deep cherry red with brilliant blue hues.
Nose: Lovely cherry, plum and vanilla aromas along with spice sensations.
Palate: The wine shows an abundance of ripe blackberries, cedar, plums and chocolate. The palate is well rounded and velvety, laced with fine tannins and balanced acidity allowing for a long finish. Youthful and long lasting!
Food: Antipasto, pasta with Bolognese sauce, Roast meat and braised lamb dishes.
