Buy of the Week AU

Giesen The Brothers’ Land Merlot 2015, Hawke’s Bay, AUD $17

This medium-bodied merlot tastes like a cheaper Bordeaux: leafy, plummy, with green olive overtones, and a soft, fleshy texture in the mouth. A pleasant easy-drinking merlot for current consumption. The price is remarkable. (Screwcap)
