Halliday Wine Companion – Serengale Vineyard Merlot Cabernet 2016

Reviewed by Ned Goodwin, published 20 March 2022

Score: 96/100 (Gold)

The wine’s granitic crunch assembles dark plum, aniseed, bitter chocolate, graphite, lead and a controlled warmth and detail to a cavalcade of expansive, dusty tannins. There, but juicy, moreish and far from hard or compressed. The oak is buried by the wine’s implacable density, gushing fruit and yet, cool climate sinew, reserve and freshness. This is an absolutely superb wine that is surely among the country’s very finest merlot-dominant blends.
