A superb food wine, this merlot is notable for its purity of fruit expression. Approachable when young yet complex, leathery and gamey with age. New Zealand Merlot is known for rich & well structured, showing characters of plum, blackcurrant & chocolate, with an elegant frmness.
- Colour Appearance: Rich ruby hue
- Tasting Notes: Black cherry, dark chocolate, dried herb and a hint of toasted oak combine with round, soft tannins for a mouth-flling full bodied red.
- Food matching: A classic match with lamb shanks or steak and mushrooms. Pungent cheeses become more transforming when accompanied by this delightful Merlot.
