In a nutshell: A bright, moreish, and overflowing red fruit Merlot from Riverland Vineyards in Southeast Australia.
The lowdown: This wine is produced under the Boutinot name, in partnership with winemaker Samantha Bailey, who imparts her signature palate and decades of experience onto the wine. The grapes for this wine were grown in the glorious Australian sunshine, on the banks of the Murray River near the bustling town of Mildura. Influenced by a Mediterranean climate, the vines are carefully looked after, and the ancient soils enriched with recycled organic matter. This wine is a bright, plush, and deeply tasty Merlot, that is abundant in freshly picked red fruit with a soft tannic profile and long, moreish finish.
When to drink: This is a very versatile wine that can be enjoyed with a wide range of meat dishes.
