Gartelmann Joey Merlot 2014

Gartelmann is located in the Hunter Valley, and has taken to looking a little further than that region in order to expand the portfolio. Took me a while to twig but I actually visited the winery for breakfast back in December 2015.

Blue fruit, a little hint of game, earthen, mushroom. 

Black fruit, spice, a little tobacco; acid a touch too prominent for my liking. Inherently savoury bent with underlying fruit. Balanced, yes, though personally i found the acid a touch too prominent. 

Decent length, certainly indicative of quality. 90 

Tasted on: Thursday 28th July, a Fruit to Root day
Source: Sample
Price: $25
Alcohol: 14.7%
