Beresford Highwood Merlot

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Merlot needs your help, there was a time when it was a helpless cause but it’s back in the limelight in a big way and being made intelligently. This wine from South Australian winery Beresford proves the point eloquently using the best parcels of fruit to manipulate Merlot magnificence. It shows cherries and mulberries before unleashing a palate that’s cloaked in generous fruit and surprising length.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Dark Cherry with purple rim.

Nose: Fresh cherries and mulberries with slight herbaceous undertones.

Palate: Ripe dark berries dominate a fleshy, juicy mid palate. Displaying great richness and depth of flavour and finishing with subtle, fine tannins.

Food: Braised short ribs.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Light- to medium-bodied; bright, fresh red fruits; not especially varietal, but easy on the gums.
