Yalumba, Y Series Merlot 2019

(2022) Yalumba's Y Series is a supermarket-level brand in their portfolio, and the sort of wines that will regularly be 'on promotion'. This is down to £6 for Clubcard holders at Tesco at time of review, but note that deal finishes on 18th April 2022. Others will be along. Wild fermented from South Australian fruit, I think this sees a bit of oak expsosure, which adds a certain spiciness to the otherwise plummy and ripe fruit flavour, densely packed into this chunky, crowd-pleasing wine. Cherryish acidity and bit of tannic structure add balance. If you are lining up the barbie for this summer, it could be the ideal match for burgers and steaks.
