Tasting Notes - Immediately inviting, the nose opens like a summer’s day, ripe fruit, red currant, strawberries and rose petals. On the palate the wine delivers crisp raspberry acidity alongside a succulent and dense mouth feel. Precise tannins give a refreshing lift to this well-structured Merlot. Built to be immediately assessable as well as rewarding medium cellaring (5-7years) this good-natured wine will pair well with a wide variety of foods. 79% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot.14.6% ABV.
