Irvine Grand Merlot

The Grand Merlot was previously judged World’s Best Merlot in Switzerland, against Petrus, Antinori and Mondavi. "Merlot specialist James Irvine fashions this lavishly oaked effort from Eden Valley fruit. Aged in French oak, it offers up a seductive, toasty perfume, copious fruit as well as wood result in loads of toast and vanilla characteristics in this full-throttle, opulent, bigger than life Merlot!". "A smooth and carefully handled merlot, violet-like perfume, plump and succulent palate of vibrant fruit and restrained cedar/chocolate oak!" Jeremy Oliver
