Tropo Big Red
Variety: Syrah, Merlot
Region: Adelaide Hills
Alcohol: 13.5% ABV
Traditional Owners: Peramangk Country
Big Red has plenty of blue fruit on show with a near-even split of Syrah and Merlot from Birdwood. There's a herbal edge and lovely dusting of olive tapenade, a signature of Merlot. The tannin extraction has been restrained to keep this in a cool climate style with plenty of drinkability.
