Grant Burge Hillcot Merlot 2012

Attractively packaged the Vineyard series from Grant Burge. Full tote price is approaching $25, can be found at large format retailers considerably cheaper.

Black fruit, obvious veneer of oak - simple aromatics. Palate shows that fruit profile carrying forward, a welcome savoury addition too, even if acid is a little jarring. Decent tannin, decent length. 89

Tasted on: Sunday 17th August, a fruit to Root day 
Source: Sample
Price: $24.75
