Our 2017 Merlot is a wine with both opulence and elegance, with a ripe fruit sweetness that gives way to a plush mid-palate and a generous, lengthy finish. This wine is highly aromatic with enticing notes of black currants and bramble laced with coffee beans. On the palate, you’ll experience a velvety richness and generous structure. Dense flavours are abundant particularly of ripe dark plums, black olives, cocoa powder and nougat.
Savour the Merlot with roasted pheasant and root vegetables or pan seared, medium-rare tenderloin with red wine jus.
While the 2017 Merlot is currently quite approachable with such round tannins, we recommend cellaring under ideal conditions for up to 10 years to truly reap the rewards of an aged well-crafted Merlot.
