Bargain of the week

Deakin Estate Merlot, Riverland 2012 $10

In outstanding years like 2012, you can find some surprising value for money wines, such as this. It’s a bright, simple, fruit-wine; medium-bodied and smoothly textured, with some fleshiness and palate length. Dark fruit aromas and flavours; soft tannins. A head-turning wine that really over-delivers for $10. Best now to 2017. 13.5 per cent alcohol. 87/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)
