Merlot 2018

2018, Quality dry red wine
Taste and sensory characteristics

A well-known international variety from which we have produced wine with great care and an emphasis on local traditions. The colour is dark purple and the bouquet suggests the perfect harmony of fruit tones and fullness, which is characteristic of the variety. Tones of wild cherries and black cherries round out the spicy aroma. The wine was produced in a special fermentation tank for red wine with a rotating system – namely maturing for 18 days in wooden barrels. The sip is full of life and has a mineral, fine woody character complemented by elegant acids. The wine is good for drinking even when fresh, but it also has a good maturation potential. The combination of fruit and barrel flavours is ideal for every occasion.
