- The Wine
Merlot from Austria is challenging to sell in the UK because there is so much Merlot from everywhere. For us to import and list one, it has to be impressive and interesting. Of course with Christian Fischer, one of the best Red Wine makers, this Merlot often wows us. This wine is, year after year an excellent Merlot, although we only buy it when it is irresistible (and not even every time). Ideal companion to all strong meat dishes and spicy cheese.
2004 - another stunning Merlot. The 2002 was a hard act to follow but the 2004 pushes all the right buttons. Again, intensely dark purple with a truffly earthy nose with smoke, sweet cedarwood, vanilla and a hint of cassis. On the palate, full-bodied and powerful yet smooth with intense ripe fruit, prune flavours, vanilla, soft tannins and a creamy texture. Dry and spicy finish with huge length. Falstaff 92-94 points.
