Silkwood Estate The Bowers Merlot 2017

Sampled this early in the morning and then revisited some hours later when it was absolutely singing. 

Merlot, so maligned, yet here it's such a varietal expression - as befits the cool of Pemberton - all tobacco, green olive and peppercorn. 

Soft, inviting, a medium bodied example, tannin fine and expressive. It carries an air of freshness, an acidic line on a tail of expressiveness. A joyous wine. 91. Drink to 2027
