Merlot Terroir Selection 2018

2018, Quality dry red wine
Taste and sensory characteristics

This is an elite international variety from which we produce this wine based on local traditions and with great emphasis on every detail. The wine is dark purple in colour, the aroma heavy and complex, with a spicy character filled out by tones of sour cherry, black cherry and plums. The grapes are macerated for 16 long days, resulting in a fullness of the bouquet, which is enhanced by ripening in new wooden barrels. The sip has a rather cool character with a delicate mineral, slightly woody tone, and a taste of wild blackberries and plums. The wine is wonderful for consuming now, but it also has great potential for maturation. The mixed fruit flavours and the taste of the barrel lingers on the palate for a long time.
