Pertaringa Stage Left Merlot 2012

Fruit here is drawn from the wider 'Adelaide' super region, meaning it could from the Hills, McLaren Vale itself and the wider Fleurieu.

Simplicity in approach, the allure of a vibrant fruit laden profile. Lacks the savoury aromatics one commonly sees in Merlot, what works here is approachability.

There's a little choc-mint, it's smooth and supple on entry. Spice adds a little interest, raspy tanning some contrast. Decent length - enjoyable as a 'drink now' proposition. 87
