Silverstream 2007 Reserve Merlot – Great Southern

Silverstream Wines Reserve Merlot 2007Do you like aged wines? This Silverstream Wines Merlot is from 2007 which makes it 12 years old and boy it was tasting good when I tried it with Naomi recently!

It was grown using organic principles and prior to being released it spent 24 months in a mix of new and old oak. Naomi picked this one up for $35 at their cellar door in Denmark in WA’s Great Southern wine region earlier in the year. You can see some pictures from her visit at the bottom of this post.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one, it was definitely one of my highlights from raiding Naomi’s wine cellar.

Here are my notes:

Garnet shade in the glass. The nose makes me think of fruits of the forest, menthol/mint, capsicum and a sprinkling of white pepper. In the mouth it has a nice oomph of flavour and is surprisingly fresh for its age. It has a smooth texture and a dry tannin laced finish. Yum!
