Schild Estate 2018 Merlot (Barossa Valley)

This cherry-hued Merlot opens with ripe, fruity notes of cherry and strawberry, backed by flowers on their stems, licorice and baking spices. There's a touch of barrel influence, too. Thankfully, the fruit is lifted on the palate by bright acidity, but it also makes it feel a little thin and the tannins and oak a bit bitter. Nevertheless, this is a medium weight, varietally expressive wine. Christina Pickard
