Prescient Merlot Report 2021


In the recent tasting of Merlots for this report, the 2018 Shannon Mount Bullet Merlot was included in the Top 10 and scored 90/100.

Judges’ comments: Matured for 20 months in French oak barrels, 25% new, this wine offers dark berries, crushed herbs, milk chocolate and spice on the nose. The palate is rich and full – sweet, dense fruit offset by bright acidity, the tannins nicely firm. A big, glossy rendition of the variety.

A total of 55 entries were received from 45 producers with just 11 (20%) rating 90-plus on the 100-point quality scale.

Congratulations to the Shannon team!
