The Little Penguin Merlot 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

2007 was a relatively early vintage, with low rainfall and warm weather contributing to an early budburst and flowering. Mild to warm weather throughout summer helped the fruit to mature well and rains at harvest allowed fruit to ripen well with good varietal character. This Australian Merlot is a deep, brilliant red. Fleshy ripe strawberries and juicy blueberries entice the palate into a meandering river of black fruits and spice. The palate is soft and stylish with superbly ripe Merlot fruit, leading to a long, sweet finish. Serve it up with hard cheeses, BBQ tri tip or Asian cuisine. The Little Penguin, the smallest of penguins, is found all along the coast of South Eastern Australia - from north of Sydney around to Western Australia, a habitat that also frames the best wine growing regions in Australia.

The Little Penguin:
The little penguin wines are appropriate for any occasion. From a party with the whole colony to a quiet night in the burrow, the little penguin enjoys nothing more than socializing and foraging for delicacies.

Consistently tasty. Goes well on its own or with food. Great when I don't want to take a chance with something new.
