Sourced from vines planted in 1971 this Merlot displays superb colour with an inky black core and a deep very dark crimson red hue. Scented aromas of ripe plum and blackcurrants are followed by a hint of liquorice, smoky vanillin oak and spice. Full, rich and plushly textured the palate possesses a ripe flavour profile of ripe dark plums and cassis fruit over a background of smoky vanillin cedar and spice. Velvet smooth tannins. Long aftertaste of dark plum, cassis, smoky vanillin cedar and spice. A big ripe Merlot that’s missing some finesse and complexity.
Cellar 4-5 years.
Alc. 14.5%
