SELECTION 23 Merlot uncovers berry flavours, lashings of coffee and spice and a delicious lingering finish. A rare beauty to behold, get your hands on this gem before everyone else does.
Merlot grapes from selected vineyards were harvested at optimum maturity to maximise varietal fruit flavours and supple tannins. Fruit was fermented and left on skins in static and rotary fermenters for seven days to maximise colour and flavour extraction. After primary fermentation the wines were soft pressed and underwent malolactic fermentation before being aged in French oak for six months before being blended and filtered prior to bottling.
The palate is of plum, spice and blackberry flavours with a velvety texture and soft tannins and the nose exhibits Spice, blackcurrant, dark cherry and plum with toasty oak.
Ideal food match would be Beef Wellington or Roasted Vegetable Lasagne.
