"Might well be Australia’s finest merlot." "Moss Wood make a powerful, concentrated and spicy merlot. It has proper grippy tannins. I recently tasted a wide range of Grand Cru Bordeaux in Sydney. This Merlot would fit comfortably into that company. Interestingly Clare Mugford, joint owner and winemaker was telling me that Moss Wood sell more of their Merlot in Asia and Europe than in Australia. A prophet unappreciated in his own land? Yes. This is the equal of their cabernets for which they are better known." __________ Fergal Gleeson @greatwineblog about Moss Wood Ribbon Vale 2014 Merlot __________ . .

It would seem that the rain has returned for us here in beckenham. At least our gardens will be thankful for it. Now that its cooling down a bit a nice red sounds like a great addition to your evening. How about Pomerol?
There are but a few producers in the whole of France that you could call synonymous with the Pomerol name. The Moueix family own and look after one of the most incredible estates in the world and their impact upon the regulation of this right-bank commune is second to none.
Christian Moueix Pomerol 2010 @ £11.95 p/half £23.95 p/bt £49.95 p/mag This stunning merlot-dominated blend draws you in with gorgeous notes of violets, coffee, spice and liquorice. A wonderfully long and savoury finish with excellent tannic structure and acidity makes this one fantastic at any time of day... but better with a Sunday roast!
