Magical Merlot! 12 of our favourite Merlot

Sorry - this product is no longer available

A good Merlot can be enjoyed every day and the way the plum and raspberry fruits come screaming out of the glass, this could be your everyday wine.

You will experience those same fruit characters from the nose on the palate, as well as the soft mid-palate weight of the wine. Maraschino cherries start to show up and the soft, silky tannins just draw out the palate leaving you lip smackingly satisfied.

Your Regional Merlot is just entering its prime drinking time and will continue to reward for the next couple of years. This weekend it would look awesome when served alongside grilled lamb cutlets and a tzatziki dipping sauce.

Black Label TPR Tempranillo 2016

Our 2016 TPR appears quite ‘soft’ in the glass. It looks more like a traditional Rioja out of Spain than an Australian Tempranillo.
The aromas on the nose are a medley of savoury spice. Fresh ground nutmeg and powered cocoa lead the way with toasty oak in support. With time in the glass we see the fruit open up and begin to shine.
The palate is quite lively with rich, intense dark fruits, grippy tannins and soft acidity on the finish. There is a ‘meaty’ intensity about this wine giving it quite a savoury edge. Good in the cellar for around 5-7 years.
With those savoury flavours we suggest a dry aged, grass fed sirloin caramelised over hot coals. Pair with charred broccolini & crusty bread.

Black Label Ward Shiraz Cabernet 2014

The Shiraz Cabernet Blend is unique to Australian shores and you could say we invented it. Our 2014 Ward shows those lovely bass notes of Shiraz and High Hats of Cabernet Sauvignon that make this such an awesome style. Ripe Shiraz fruits are complimented by the rich herbaceous Cabernet characters of black currant and tomato leaf and are well integrated after 23 months in French and American oak.
The young tannins are long on the finish and the sweet vanilla oak characters add depth to the wine. Full bodied and well-structured this is definitely a wine for the cellar. We are thinking 10 years plus but maybe longer.
Need a food match? Slow roasted lamb shoulder. You pick your favourite roasted veg.

Black Label Hamish Shiraz 2014

What many consider to be the Icon wine at Glandore, the 2014 Hamish Shiraz will without doubt exceed expectations for all.
A deep, sangre red this wine is full of concentrated power where no one character rules but the sum of all its parts make it a great wine. The nose is full of earth, black pepper and rich, concentrated red berry fruits that constantly evolve in the glass.
The palate shows a freshness of youth with hints of espresso coffee, dark chocolate, ripe fruit and outstanding balance. Full bodied and the with great structure this wine is our Icon Shiraz.
Definitely worth cellaring. 15+? We think so but see if you can do it. If not, make the effort, track it down and make a Wild Boar Ragu, served with a crunchy baguette and creamy rich butter.
