The Merlot of Rawson's Retreat is a varietal, vibrant red wine from South Australia.
In the glass, this wine shines in a bright purple with vibrant garnet red reflections. The strong bouquet convinces the nose with aromas of juicy cherries and ripe plums with floral nuances of violets and sweet-spicy hints of freshly baked fruit cake. The aromas of the nose are also perfectly reflected on the palate. The fruity fullness of this red wine is supported by soft tannins. In the finale, a perfectly integrated oak note presents itself.
