Wine of the Week AU

Leconfield Merlot 2015, Coonawarra, AUD $26

Seldom is Australian merlot as good as this. And it’s ridiculously good value. Bright raspberry, cherry aromas, tinged with violets but minimal leafiness. It’s medium-bodied, fresh and clean with measured tannins adding structure. Good persistence and balance. (Screwcap)
