Select Merlot

$19.95 750 ml

The growing season of 2013 was long and cool, allowing the slow development of intense fruit flavours and the retention of great acidity. Our 2013 Select Series Merlot shows   plum, black cherry and cassis on both the nose and pallet. Melding in to this ripe fruit core are sweet spices and a hint of smoke, derived from its time in French Oak barrels. Cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon all show through. Milk chocolate and liquorice flavours add more depth and intrigue to an already complex and concentrated wine. This is a very approachable wine that will drink well over the next 3-5 years. Perfect to enjoy by itself at cellar temperature or accompanying a flank steak, gourmet burgers, or beef pot pie.
