Wild Fox 2005 Merlot
Winery/Brand: Wild Fox
Soft blackberry nose, cinnamon french oak aroma underling giving great complexity. A big generous palatte, well weighted and balanced. Plummy fruit upfront with coffee chocolate flavours lingering with a tight dusty oak finish.
"05 Merlot - Forget all you know about Merlot being a soft, easy drinking variety. This is a big, rich plummy fruit bomb. Only warm climate wine snobs would argue. This variety really suits a warmer climate. If you're patient enough to keep your hands off this beauty for three years it will sing! Built with a stack of extract to keep it focussed and tight. Even those who just can't resist it now will be rewarded with old fashioned plums and boiled Christmas fruit cake flavours on the nose and warm mouth - filling suppleness to extend a big fruit - driven palate" Paul Le Lacheur - National Wine judge and freelance journalist.
