Reserve Merlot 2016
Merlot is known for its soft, velvety texture and its abundant fruit flavours. We find this to be no exception. The warm slopes in St Davids seem to provide classic and true Merlot fruit and wine. 2016 was a warm and dry vintage which is good for this type of full bodied wines.
This wine is rich and full. It shows aromas of bumble berry pie, aromatic vanilla and ripe plum. In the mouth, it shows classic merlot round-ness and texture. The tannin here is quite well integrated and not too drying. Our reserve Merlot finishes with a long lasting berry finish.
Our Merlot would make a great match for a “steakhouse” style burger. A nice thick patty topped with melted old cheddar and a dollop of horseradish mayo is just what this wine needs!
