Brunton Road (Gisborne) 2018 Merlot
4.5 Stars 86 Points - Sam Kim Wine Orbit
"Sweetly ripe and nicely fragrant, showing dark plum, raspberry, thyme, olive and warm spice aromas, leading to a succulent palate that's gentle and smooth. Friendly and approachable with ripe fruit flavours and a lingering mellow finish. At its best: now to 2023."
Quaffable, fruity Merlot from Gizzy.
Rich ruby colour, with hints of blackberry, cherry, sage and thyme. Hinting at dark fruit and black pepper with tannins nicely integrated. The palate is generous and full of elegant fruit intensity leading to a finish that is long and inviting. Brilliant with fish, seafood, poultry and pork.
