|TASTING NOTE: For CREW, being a small family-owned and -operated winery is a point of considerable pride, and the effort and dedication shine through in their wines. This Merlot from the near-perfect 2016 vintage is ripe and savoury with superb complexity and is loaded with black plums, red and dark berry, cigar box, earth and spice. Tight and full with great poise, this will be ideal for hearty lamb stew or game meats such as bison burgers. (Vintages panel, March 2018)
