Shaw Vineyard 2013 Estate Merlot - Canberra Wine District

COOL climate champ with
mildly-spicy curries or stir-fries.

ONE TO NOTE:  IF your choice in curries and stir-fries leans more towards those that are just mildly spicy rather than gasping-for-air infernos, a rewarding drop to put on the table with them is a 2013 Shaw Vineyard Estate Merlot from cool climate Murrumbateman in the Canberra Wine District.

With a lovely rounded palate of ripe plums and blackberries, this is a drop that rewards consumers for winemaker Graeme Shaw and his team having gone to the trouble to pick in the cool of night, and then choosing only the very best of fruit as it came off the vine. A ripper drop with those curries or stir fries, or simply on its own.
