Ridgemill Estate Merlot 2012

Leads with a sweet perfume that's more in the berry spectrum. With time, and air, that segues to a little wood, olive skin and herb.

Initially juicy, acid feels a touch jangly at first - berry fruit, a little tart blueberry. You start to see glimpses of the savoury edges, and the blue fruit comes back on day two, tannin settling into a good rhythm within itself. Touch and go a point higher 89
