Excellent example of Merlot from warm climate - ripe plums & blackberry.
Tasting Notes: This Merlot is an intense, bright ruby red-violet colour with aromas that recall black fruit jams such as plum, blackberry, and blueberry. It also shows a touch of spice along with light toasted notes from the oak. The wine has soft, sweet tannins and a flavourful, full-bodied palate with a long finish.
