My brother brought me Lindermans Bin 40 Merlot and Yalumbea Y Series Merlot
which he got them from Coles in the city of Melbourne. What James Halliday suggested in his book was right. The taste of Lindermans Bin 40 Merlot was not bad comparing with its price. Unfortunately, I have not tried Yalumbea Y Series Merlot.
