Tasting Notes:

The nose is all creamy with delicate strawberry, fresh cassis and underlying nuances of lavender and cedar wood. Rich and lush in the mouth with generous flavours of exotic dark berries contrasting with fresh herbal notes and a hint of light spice. Elegant and refined with silky smooth tannins that envelop the palate. The finish is long and intense with deep red cherry and a lovely savoury character.

The style of this wine was determined in the vineyard, with careful attention being given to green harvesting, canopy management as well as crop management. Soft yet voluptuous with intense, succulent flavours that explode on the palate and awaken your taste buds.

A cold and wet winter filled up the soil profiles. Warm weather in August resulted in earlier bud break, after which a warm, dry and windy summer accelerated ripening by two weeks. Lower temperatures at night during ripening contributed to pleasing colour and flavour.

Fermentation takes place in modern stainless steel fermenters and malolactic fermentation, depending on the wine, takes place in barrel. After fermentation, the wine is matured in selected French oak barrels. Each barrel is specifically selected for a particular wine and wine style. Every detail is considered – the specific coopers, origin of the oak, toasting of the oak and size of the barrel.

18 months in French oak barrels, 40% new.

Food pairing

Merlot wine matches with a wide variety of foods because of its position in the middle of the red wine spectrum. In general Merlot pairs well with chicken and other light meats as well as lightly-spiced dark meats.
