91 pts - Stuart Robinson (Vinsomniac)

Sampled this early in the morning and then revisited some hours later when it was absolutely singing. Merlot, so maligned, yet here it's such a varietal expression - as befits the cool of Pemberton - all tobacco, green olive and peppercorn. Soft, inviting, a medium bodied example, tannin fine and expressive. It carries an air of freshness, an acidic line on a tail of expressiveness. A joyous wine. 91. Drink to 2027

4.5 stars - John Lewis (Newcastle Herald)

WITH 13% alcohol, this good-value Silkwood Estate 2017 The Bowers Merlot is so-named because the vines are surrounded bytowering karri trees. The wine is cherry red and has bouquet garni scents and ripe mulberry front-palate flavour. The middle palate shows blueberry, black olive, mint and cedary oak and the finish dusty tannins. PRICE: $20. DRINK WITH: chicken kebabs. AGEING: four years.
