Description

Bright garnet in the glass, this Merlot exhibits sweet aromas of tobacco, cedar box and black berry compote with hints of pencil case. The elegant palate offers appealing flavours of dark plum and ripe cherry wrapped with silky tannin. Utterly delicious, this Merlot requires extended appreciation.

Selectively hand harvested and then gently destemmed, partially crushed Merlot berries were then plunged twice daily in a small open fermenter while complexity enhancing yeast conducted the ferment. Once dry, the skins were pressed from the wine, and the wine was transferred to American, Hungarian and French barriques for malolactic fermentation. After 18 months maturation in wood, the wine was gently fined with fresh egg whites before being filtered and bottled.

This well structured wine shows wonderful richness now, with full expression of fruit aroma and flavour. Ripe tannins and balanced acidity will ensure cellaring for  7 – 10 years.

Food Pairing: This Malbec has wonderfully intense flavours, colour and aroma. Partner it perfectly with venison, duck confit, and super rich chocolate cake if you dare!
