Ripe berry fruit and blood plum flavours
The deep crimson huesof this Merlot give way to a tantalisingly soft palate of ripe berry fruit and blood plum flavours. Gentle tanninsand excellent length suggest this wine will drink exceptionally well over the next 8 to 10 years. This is a great food wine! Partner it with roast pork, duck or at the kitchen table with a friend.
