Merlot Red
IGP Pays d'Oc

Winner of IWSC 2013, 2016 & 2017 Bronze. 
Merlot is the world's most popular red grape variety thanks to its smooth, supple character. A deliciously drinkable wine. It is a fine choice to accompany roast and grilled meats and can be enjoyed with mellow cheeses.

Winemaking

› Part of the crop is harvested slightly over-ripe to provide richness and depth
› De-stemming and crushing
› Maceration for 2 to 3 weeks
› Wine is racked off before undergoing malolactic fermentation
› 15% is oak aged for 6 months before blending and bottling
› VEGAN WINE.

Tasting Notes

› Intense brilliant red colour
› Full and rich nose with delicious stone fruit and black cherry flavours.
› Silky with delicate tannins and a long finish. Generous and very well balanced.

Enjoy with grilled steak, barbecued sausages and hearty cheese. Our winemaker Véronique specially recommends this wine with a lamb curry !

"...a gold medal winner (Decanter). Judges look for a balance between fruit, depth, and maybe oak. This wine is perfectly balanced and this price is ridiculous for this quality, you do not get better value."
