Tasting Notes

This complex but also elegant wine spoils you with flavours of raspberry, ripe red plum, vanilla, coffee, liquorice, chocolate and nuances of tobacco. This wine has an elegant structure with velvety tannins and a surprisingly lengthy aftertaste. The balance is simply near perfect!

Blend Information

100% Merlot

Food Suggestions

Enjoy this on its own or with roasted duck breast or tomato and basil pasta. Will also pair well with a creamy mushroom risotto.

In The Vineyard

Strategically selected sites which get the warm sunny days and cooling effect of the Atlantic Ocean. Deep soils from decomposed granite, clay rich, good drainage.

In The Cellar

Destalk and crush, 5-10 days fermentation at 20-30°C
Maturation: 8 months aged on French and American oak staves
