Gumdale Merlot is a very interesting Merlot. The single best word to describe this wine is fresh. I once sampled a wine as it was being bottled and this wine reminded me of that experience.
What I love about Australia wines is that they seemed to be made exclusively for a good time.
This wine has a hint of liquorice to it. It seems to add to the overall experience.
Overall I would give this one a 4/5.
