Another crowd pleaser from the Taylor Family & apparently you all think so too. So perhaps it is no surprise that this is a medium bodied Merlot with a generous soul. There is plenty of fresh plum spice fun to be had here.

The fruit is intense, sweet and fragrant and is deliciously backed up by enough savouriness to keep [...]
An intense wine with dark berries, plums and savoury characters. This wine could do with a couple of more years to soften the grippy tannins, but is a good food wine now and would be nice with cheese.

The aromas of strawberry and cream, raspberry and highlights of smoky minerals are a refreshing introduction followed by cherries, minerals and spice in the mouth. Pink Billy has a crisp attitude and a steely backbone that will match well with food but is lovely drinking by itself.
