Residual Sugar 5.8 g/L
This is a striking Merlot. On the nose, lovely ripe plum, strawberry, blackberry and mulberry combine with vanilla, spice and slightly earthy tones in the background. A full-bodied and rich palate brings plum, fig, glace cherries and toffee layered over cocoa, coffee, nutmeg and vanilla. The weight and structure mean this Merlot can be enjoyed now with decanting, but also has the potential to cellar for 7-9 years. Pairs well with anything full-flavoured, from steak and barbecue to cured meat and hard cheeses.
