Merlot
Critic's Rating 90 pts

Aromas of graphite, blueberry, and plum dance on the nose, while its palate of blueberry and plum are complemented by its fine tannins.

Food Pairing: Merlot 2021 is a remarkable red wine that pairs perfectly with some of your favorite dishes. Enjoy it with cheeseburgers, ratatouille, lasagna, and poultry like duck with blueberry sauce and cornish hens.

Residual Sugar: 2.7 g/L
Cases Produced: 180

Appearance: Ruby-purple colour.
Nose: Cedary, plum bouquet with oak spice.
Palate: Medium-bodied, richly extracted red cherry and red plum flavours. Well-integrated oak and supple tannins. Engaging floral note on the back taste. Nicely balanced.
