River Farm Godfrey Road Merlot

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This compact, brooding merlot hails from Marlborough, NZ, which we don’t normally associate with merlot. Nevertheless, this is well worth checking out. Lots of dark spiced fruits rise from the glass, together with a generous hit of dark chocolate. The palate is full-bodied, dry and savoury with fine tannins and a respectable length. It's at the serious end of merlot, and will have you licking your lips and wanting more.

Winemaker's Notes

Our Merlot is showing great promise and is already drinking very well. It is deeply coloured, with an inviting nose of rich earthy aromas complemented by black currant, violet, chocolate and spice flavours. It is a big bodied and complex wine, beautifully balanced with a long and generous mouth-feel. It will continue to develop in the bottle over the next ten years.

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Dark and dense, with cassis, spice and herb flavours. Some leafy notes, but savoury, complex and finely structured, with excellent depth and obvious potential.
