2016 Jeanneret Hummer Merlot Shiraz
- Clare Valley
- Bottle size
- 750 mL
A profound colour heralds a prodigiously generous wine, and on the nose it doesn’t hold back with an avalanche of dark plum, chocolate and deep, warm spice. As voluptuous and as lavishly upholstered as any wine has a right to be, the palate is the definition of luxury, indulgence and hedonistic delight. It would take a cold heart not to be drawn in by the come-hither charms of this extravagant blend of Merlot and Shiraz. Very, very delicious and very, very approachable.
