Brookfields Burnfoot Hawke's Bay Merlot (2018)

Typically great value. The 2018 vintage (4*) was matured for a year in seasoned French and American oak casks. Drinking well now, it has fullish, moderately youthful colour. Full-bodied, it has plum, spice and blackcurrant flavours, showing very good ripeness and depth.
