Brookfields Burnfoot Merlot 2016 750ml
The ‘Burnfoot’ Merlot exhibits bold plums, oak, wild herbs & spice which is under pinned by firm alcohol. Due to the vineyard’s northerly aspect and not being irrigated, there is a concentration of flavours. Vibrance is the hallmark of the ‘Burnfoot’ Merlot - the flavours will evolve for many years.- it was another good vintage for Merlot in the Tuki Tuki Valley. This ‘Burnfoot’ Merlot has a well-integrated and balanced palate, making it approachable and enjoyable now.
Drinking now and will age well for another 5-6 years.
An ideal pairing with wild venison cooked with Portuguese herbs & spices...
