Spier Merlot Signature Collection 2018

Western Cape, South AfricaFrom vineyards in Swartland, Paarl, Breedekloof, and Stellenbosch, this Western Cape merlot is predominantly aged in stainless steel tanks with the addition of French oak staves. Expect a combination of roasted dark cherry fruit, chocolate, and smoky oak that gives way to a rich but juicy palate. The concentration is above the norm for the price, though the palate isn't entirely seamless with grainy tannins and some tartness to the finish.Tasted: 13 April 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 13.99 BCLS Select Producer: SpierDistributors: Whitehall Premium Wines & Spirits
