Wine Enthusiast, June 2008
A wine that demands love and affection, with its almost indecent juiciness on top of rounded cherry fruits, enveloping sweetness and underlying acidity. Enjoy.

Deep crimson with a broad, smudgy rim. Vigorous nose. The gentle aroma of this second wine leaps out of the glass with a light leafiness on the nose suggesting that the less ripe grapes went into this. Fairly light bodied and just a little angular. Still slightly chewy on the finish but fine in texture with a refreshing menthol note at the very end. ‘I pick Merlot very early,’ Lurton tells us. ‘In 2005 a cool September freshened everything up and gave us subtle tannins. Merlot was a great success.’ 17/20
