2014 Merlot


Number pieces in box:6
Order / Enquiry

Deep, ruby red colour. A very attractive, complex nose with aromas of spice, forest floor, cherry and wild berries. The palate has lovely velvety berry fruit with firm but fine tannins. Good structure and balance with a long finish. The wine is accessible upon release but will benefit from 6-8 years ageing.

Alc : 14.5 / T.A. :  5.60 / pH  :  3.56 / R.S.:  1.9
