Saint Clair Pioneer Block 17 Plateau Block Gimblett Gravels Merlot (2019)

Deeply coloured, with a fragrant, slightly earthy bouquet, the 2019 vintage (4.5*) is a concentrated red. Full-bodied, it has strong, youthful, plum and spice flavours, seasoned with toasty oak, fresh acidity and ripe, supple tannins. Showing obvious potential, it's well worth cellaring to 2023+.
