2021 Penny’s Hill Malpas Road Merlot
Aged in barrel for 16 months. Dense midnight black in colour with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Aromas of blackcurrant and ripe mulberry show good elevation out of the glass followed by some scorched earth, cedary tobacco and spice notes. Rich and robust in the mouth the full bodied palate is awash with blackcurrant and mulberry fruits which are underscored by a firm tannin structure. Earthy black olive, vanillin cedar and spice characters linger. Chewy with a ripe, muscular conclusion.
Cellar 4-5 years.
