A medium bodied red with full berry flavours. Velvety smooth and perfectly balanced. Ageing potential of 3-5 years. Food Pairing: In general Merlot pairs well with chicken and other light meats as well as lightly-spiced dark meats. With medium tannin and lower acidity you’ll find Merlot pairs well with many foods.
2 years new barrel maturation, 4 years bottle maturation. No crushing of berries, no yeast but that from their skins, no fining- additives and no filters. Wine made by itself, kept for two years in the best new French-oak barrels, fit for this wonder. It is a piece of our history, our passion, labour and luck we were selling. It is our finest expression of Cabernet Sauvignon, and the best we can do. Will age for another 15-20 years.
