Notes of dark plum, cherry, violets and star anise on the bouquet. The palate is silky on entry and then shows a seamless transition to an elegant mid-palate. The palate shows further red and black fruit, intermingled with spicy, cedary oak flavours.
Tannins are fine grained and well integrated, allowing for a long, velvety finish.
Personal Food pairing:
Merlot pairs well with lighter style dishes like panko crumbed pork with mustard cream sauce or roasted tomato pasta.
