Merlot the Little Penguin South Eastern Australia Vin Rouge Vin Tranquille Australie Australie Méridionale the Little Penguin 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Smooth as diving into the sea, 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.

Wonderful dark ripe fruit hints at sweetness. Nice balance, soft finish, delicious on it's own. Good from the first pour, slightly better the second day.

For the price, this is a great merlot. I do agree with other reviews that the 2008 is a bit better than the 2009.

For the price, Little Penguin makes a very respectable merlot. The 2008 vintage is a little better than the 2009, to the point that I would suggest the buy the 2008 if you can find it. As always, the serving temperature and proper aeration is important.

Smooth and velvety, with pretty blueberry and currant fruit under a smoky veil of fine tannins, finishing with a cedary lift. Drink now.
