Firespinner Merlot 2018

Victoria

Enjoy luscious ripe fruit in this velvety Merlot from the warm vineyards of Central Victoria. It’s from the talented McPherson cellar team, who masterfully integrated the subtle spice of French oak to flatter the juicy ripe plum of the Merlot.

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, whose Full Fifteen and other bestsellers have delighted customers for years. For some time now the McPherson team have been paying special attention to Merlot and they say it’s fast becoming their signature grape. Andrew’s aim is always to make wines that are hugely enjoyable upon release. We think he’s hit the spot yet again with Firespinner. Enjoy this tasty red with chicken, sausages or spicy roast vegetables.
