The soft, fleshy nature of Merlot partners well with medium to heavy food dishes. The palate is rich and smooth, with dark berry fruits and a layer of integrated oak. A complex nose showing berry fruits and spice, with a little vanilla creaminess.

Description

This low yielding variety is ideal for the cool maritime climate of Mt.Compass which contributed to this soft velvety mouth feel of the Merlot.

The soft, fleshy nature of Merlot partners well with medium to heavy food dishes. Try some with a rich tomato pasta dish, roasted meats or Mediterranean vegetables, or even a creamy mushroom ristotto.

The palate is rich and smooth, with dark berry fruits and a layer of integrated oak. A complex nose showing berry fruits and spice, with a little vanilla creaminess.
