Cumulus Wines 'Climbing'

Merlot, 2009

Australia Red

Orange, New South Wales 75cl

So i have been reviewing the Rolling range of wines from Cumulus, the next price bracket up is Climbing, these vineyards are 600 metres above sea level (Rolling c500).
Plum, black cherry and herbs on an inviting nose, touch of chocolate and oak too.
Medium to full bodied, it's really bright and juicy. Morello cherry and plum to the fore, lovely fruit sweetness with some plain chocolate and oak on a long finish. The tannins are plush and this is an excellent varietal Merlot and i am not prone to saying that often.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
