Informatie van de wijnmaker:
The wine has a deep, ruby red color with reflects of garnet, that indicate a mature and full wine. It has an intense and persistent fragrance of ripe, slightly dried plum, ripe raspberries and red mulberries. You can also notice scents of green undergrowth and dry grass. In the mouth, the wine is nicely balanced with just the right amount of freshness, richness of taste and softness of the tannins. Medium warmth and long aftertaste result in a pleasant harmony.
Merlot will be a great pairing for red meat dishes (also with stronger sauces), roasts and small and feathered game meat.
