Renato Nelson Merlot 2014 $27.90

Intensely lifted and floral, this shows plum blossom and black forrest essences which ooze through on the nose and palate. Highly youthful acidity and fine, emery-like tannins lead to a ripe yet ultimately elegant and very Bordeaux-like Merlot. It’s a sophisticated example from Nelson, (a region WAY more famous for its pinot noir, chardonnays and aromatic whites) but this saucy red proves it can totally deliver. It’s the business with honey, soy and ginger beef sausages.
