Lush, gorgeously fruity and eminently drinkable Merlot from the warm vineyards of Central Victoria. Subtly integrated French oak flatters the juicy ripe plum, fruitcake and exotic spice of this attractive red from the talented McPherson cellar team.
Full and supple with full-on, juicy, ripe fruitiness
Ripe Victoria plums and sweet spices. A hint of oak
Australia is best known for Shiraz and Cabernet Shiraz blends, but if you know where to look you can find some mighty fine Merlot, too. And, being less fashionable, it tends to be well priced. Some of the best is produced in Victoria, and Firespinner is a particular favourite of ours. It’s made by Andrew ‘Big Mac’ McPherson and team, whose Full Fifteen and other bestsellers have delighted customers for years. For some time now the crew, led by Jo Nash, have been paying special attention to Merlot and they say it’s fast becoming their signature grape. The aim is always to make wines that are hugely enjoyable upon release. We think they have hit the spot yet again with Firespinner. Enjoy this tasty red with sausages or spicy roast vegetables.
