Judges Comments:

Under the watchful eyes of winemaker Michael Bann and consultant winemaker Matt Thompson, Summerhouse are producing a range of charming and captivating wines, and this Hawke’s Bay Merlot is testament to this. A new varietal release for them, it’s a product of 2016’s warm summer and early autumn. The aromas are dark plum and mocha, and the flavours are mouth-filling, warm and juicy. Great with everything from a roast of beef to venison sausages on the BBQ.

Pairing Recommendation:

Robust wines for robust food flavours. Try with the Sunday roast, burger and ribs, steak, sausages or game. Great with pizza and tomato-based pasta dishes. Take to a pot-luck dinner or a BBQ with the good friends.
