Why do we love this wine?

Botham Merrill Willis is a successful partnership between premier winemaker Geoff Merrill and cricketing legends Sir Ian Botham and Bob Willis. Because who wouldn’t want a knight on their side when they go into battle with the rest of the Vale (and Coonawarra, to boot)? Well, let the cricketing puns be unleashed!

Without a hint of spin, this six year old cabernet has a decent innings left in it. A full century is doubtful but a good start is ensured thanks to Geoff’s deft touch. All the classic dark berry and blackcurrant that exude cabernet at large, plus distinctive espresso and black olive notes that scream McLaren Vale, despite there being a generous amount (45%) of Coonawarra cab in here. Rounded out with Mint Slice chocolate gives a very more-ish wine for any and every time cheese is on the table.

I could spin things further but I wouldn’t want to make a silly point. So I guess that’s stumps.
