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.

"A smooth and carefully handled merlot, violet-like perfume, plump and succulent palate of vibrant fruit and restrained cedar/chocolate oak!" Jeremy Oliver
