Taylors Estate Merlot

Vintage:  Current Vintage (Enquiries Welcome)

Colour At release, the wine is a vibrant, youthful red with an intense red/purple hue.

Bouquet At release, the wine displays lifted aromas of raspberry, cherry and violets with enticing vanilla bean, spice and cinnamon from quality oak maturation.

Palate At release, the wine showcases layers of ripe, dark fruit alongside rich fruit cake characters. The mouthfeel is exactly as you would expect with a velvety softness. Oak maturation has delivered flavours of vanilla, mocha and subtle spice and the finish has a pleasing degree of elegance.

National Liquor News, April 2014

With lifted aromas of raspberry, cherry, violets and rich fruitcake flavours, this wine has multiple layers and a velvety softness.

Kevin Burke, Gourmantic, April 2014
2013 Taylors Estate wines provide a quality match for food pairing. The Merlot delivers softness to the palate with aromas of raspberry and cherry, while the oak maturation has hinted at vanilla and spices. This wine will complement a roast, Irish stew or baked figs.

Peter Chapman, Bundaberg Guardian, April 2014
The perfect wine at a good price to start the night if you love a good soft red. French and American oak characteristics add nice texture and finish.

3.5 stars
Tony Love, Adelaide Advertiser, April 2014
You will find a fair bit of merlot hanging around in the bargain shelves but few will offer value for money as this does, its typical blue to black-skinned plum fruits dovetailed with vanilla-coffee spice notes from judicious oak influences mid-palate, crafting balance in a juicy and soft, velvety finish. Good bargain drinking without sacrificing intensity and varietal presence.
