About the wine

Tasting notes

“Wonderful nose with strawberries, cherry blossom, and vanilla. The red opens up with blueberries, milk chocolate and sweet licorice. Full and juicy on palate with pure dark fruit and velvety tannins. So nicely layered texture and long in the finish with red fruit and crushed chalk. The texture is superb. Drink from 2018” – 96 Points – James Suckling

The Grape

Merlot

A red grape variety made famous in the wines of St Emillion from the Right Bank of Bordeaux. Merlot is a luscious and generously flavoured variety with a structured body, supple tannins and a juicy core with notes of potpourri, deep red and blue berries, black cherry, plum jam, chocolate, dried herbals, fruit cake spice, cedar and incense. Very food friendly and built to last decades, you're guaranteed a great time with Merlot!
