Tapanappa Whalebone Vineyard Merlot 2006 – 93 Points

Author: Chris Plummer
Source: Australian Wine Journal
Review Date: Jun 2010

he first of Tapanappa’s Wrattonbully wines tasted here, this merlot displays a wonderful vibrant lift to its somewhat minty/herbal edged red plum and boysenberry notes, with oak integration looking pretty good right now. It displays great freshness to its aroma. Like the pinot it has wondrous texture, very velvety for the variety. It finishes with a firm yet softly balanced extract of silky tannins to complement its vibrant paalte. To be honest, it’s been some time since I’ve come across an Australian merlot I’ve enjoyed so much. 93

Don't miss out on the next vintage of Tapanappa Chardonnays again!
