Kumeu River Melba's Vineyard Merlot (2013)

Still available, the 2013 vintage (4*) was estate-grown at Kumeu, in West Auckland, and barrel-aged for a year. Deeply coloured, it is an elegant rather than powerful red, sweet-fruited, with vibrant, plummy flavours, showing some savoury complexity, and a finely poised finish.
