Tasting Notes for Mercer Wines Rouge 2021 from the Winery

Made by Australia’s leading preservative free winemaker, this young red blend marries Shiraz from Hilltops and Montepulciano from Central Ranges in NSW.

A refreshing Nouveau style, with pure red fruits and soft tannin, makes for a mouthful of fruit – showcasing balanced flavours of raspberries, blackberries and plums. Picked at optimal ripeness and left to soak on skins three days prior to fermentation. Each variety was vinified independently and blended after short maturation in older French oak puncheons. No sulphur was used while making this contemporary red blend, perfect for the Australian climate.

Mercer makes sustainable wines rediscovering variety and place.

Preservative free. A blend of Shiraz and Montepulciano. Nice bloke Aaron Mercer. I don’t have much detail on this wine, though I’d guess it’s a carbonic/whole berry ferment kind of deal, such is the perfume and meaty juiciness on offer.

Ripe blackberry, meaty and spicy, sage leaf, a musky bubblegum sort of perfume to brighten it up. Juicy, fleshy, a stony sort of ‘mineral’ feel, liquorice and black cherry, a dry and dusty feel to tannin, wrapped up in all that perky and jubey fruit flavour. Finish is dry, yet succulent, with a smattering of amaro herb. It drinks really well. As an affable bistro-au-go-go wine, it really hits the spot. Juicy, but with some complexity and interest.
