Freehand Organic Preservative Free Merlot 2011
RRP around $23.00
Beautiful fresh fruit aromas jump out of the glass. I’m smelling a red fruit salad of cherries, plums and mulberries. There’s a nice element of gentle spice there too. Smells gorgeous!
This organic merlot is fleshy and juicy with good astringency. It has plenty of acid but it’s all in balance.
Classic merlot characters of mulberries and some earthy chocolate coming through too.
Lovely soft tannins and nice length. I really like this wine!
What food will it go with?
I can see this wine cutting beautifully through a crispy spiced pork belly.
Will it age?
This wine won’t get much better than it is now. I wouldn’t be keeping it much longer than 12 months. Drink by end 2015.
