Bob Berton's a deft winemaker and handy batsman. Hence the name All Out ' a reference to the legendary 1882 cricket match between Australia and England that gave birth to The Ashes. For satisfying richness Bob's plump Merlot hits the middle stump.
Bob Berton makes a few popular wines exclusively for us and All Out Merlot is a terrific introduction to his range. Why? It's vibrant and fruity, smooth and delicious and really good value. Bob started as an accountant, advising folk on how to run their businesses. He had never run one himself though, so went to work for a winery to get some real world experience and never looked back. After winemaking for some big names, he set up on his own seven years ago and is chuffed to have already gained a listing in James Halliday's definitive Australian Wine Guide. With aromas of blackcurrants, blackberries and plums, this attractive wine is easy to enjoy on its own and partners simple meals like sausages or steak and kidney pie beautifully.
