Wild & Wilder The Exhibitionist Merlot 2021
Barossa Valley, South Australia, Australia
Producer: Thistledown Wine Company
Once in a while you meet someone larger than life itself. Someone who has no fear and is not afraid to let you know just how great they think they are. Someone that, really deep down and against your better judgement, you can’t help but admire. You’re dealing with The Exhibitionist.
The Exhibitionist is full of rich plum and damson fruit on the nose. Oak used is unobtrusive on the palate which is dominated by rich red berry flavours while also presenting subtle earthy nuances. The wine is elegant and silky with a long finish.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans

2016 vintage - 91 points - Huon Hooke, The Real Review
‘Very deep, bright red/purple colour. The aromas are fresh and clean, youthful and berry-like, and in the mouth it is likewise bold, bright, youthful and firm, a little unready but of excellent quality. Traces of cedar and more than a little elegance’.
