Mercer Noir Malbec 2021
This juicy Malbec expression 'Noir' is what it says. It's dark and inky but not heavy. The mid palate is plush and chewy but there is acidity there to keep things moving and the slurp factor is high, making you want to go back for more. It shows complexity and will outclass other Australian takes on this grape at much better value.
"Modern Australian voice allowing altitude to shine. Garnet cherry hue with dense red liquorice, lifted lavender and polished fruit spice." - Mercer Wines
