This year’s Merlot is medium/dark garnet in colour, with aromas of black cherry, blackberry, caramel, chocolate and vanilla. The palate shows plum complemented with a blend of savoury dark berries and mocha/chocolate. It’s medium-bodied with velvety/dusty tannins, good acidity with well-integrated oak and medium finish.
Due to the savoury or ‘umami’ note in this wine - try tomato-based Italian dishes and roast chicken, mushrooms and parmesan.
Best consumed now or up until 2025.
