Alpha Domus The Fox Moth Merlot (2018)

Estate-grown and barrel-aged in the Bridge Pa Triangle, the highly approachable 2018 vintage (4*) is full-coloured, mouthfilling and supple, with very satisfying depth of youthful berry, plum and spice flavours, good ripeness and complexity, savoury notes and obvious potential for cellaring. Best drinking 2023+. Drinking well now, the 2017 vintage (3.5*) is full-bodied, with plenty of ripe, spicy, slightly nutty flavour, considerable complexity and a moderately firm finish.
