Flying Sheep Merlot 2016 Hawkes Bay
Bright, fresh and fruity bouquet filled with aromas of red plums and cherries, some softer light brown spice moments. Dry, fruity and youthfully firm on the palate with acidity and firm tannins. A lighter weight example that is fruit and texture centric. Low oak influence. Overall balanced and well made. Perhaps best served with food. Overall well made with best drinking from 2019 through 2022.
