Variety Merlot
WINERY Cumulus Estate
RRP 21

Good merlot varietal personality marks this wine, from Orange, NSW. The pleasant aroma is reminiscent of raspberries, juicy plums and gentle spice. It's medium-bodied and fresh-tasting, with a good mix of savoury and ripe flavours, supported by very fine tannins. (Screw cap; 13 per cent alcohol.)
Ageing? Drink over three years.
Food ideas Roast vegetable pizza; pink lamb loin.
