Brown Brothers

Brown Brothers Merlot Victoria 2012 14.5%
Lots of plum and warm climate plum spice - a fruity, varietal and familiar bouquet with a mild intensity. on the palate - dry and quite fruity with flavors that reflect the nose; mild tannins and medium acidity - the bite on the palate is mostly from the impact of oak and a the dryness; a balanced and easy drinking style well suited to food.

Brown Brothers Shiraz Victoria 2012 14%
Lots of lifted fresh red fruit aromas - raspberry and cherry followed by aromas of vanilla and gentle toasty spice; On the palate - dry with a medium body; flavors of red fruits return along with medium tannins and medium+ acidity; noticeable alcohol adds a to the mild peppery spice layer. Balanced and well made with a short finish

Brown Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon Victoria 2012 14%
The blackberry fruits of Cabernet Sauvignon show easily with this example - blackberry and blueberry are followed with some black cherry suggestions - light and harmonious on the nose. On the palate - fruity, soft, creamy palate with medium+ intensity of flavor; the black and cherry fruits return with gusto; medium acidity and tannins make for a pleasant red wine experience. Balanced and well made.

Brown Brothers Tempranillo Victoria 2013 14%
Sweet smelling, lifted and fruity bouquet of red cherry, red plum and strawberry fruits, simple yet enticingly sweet. On the palate - dry and fruity with a light smokey layer, medium acidity and dryish tannins - powdery. Overall a very drinkable wine where food should be partnered to bring out the best this wine has to offer.
