More about this wine

How to serve it
16°C.
An impressive Merlot at an affordable price. Just a touch of oak and a lot of complexity for a wine at this price point.

In Depth

Vinified in the Bordelaise style with a maceration period of 9-12 days at 28–30°C in stainless-steel tanks. 15% of the wine is matured in oak casks of 34 to 42 hectolitres while the other 85% is aged for over 10 months in 2 or 3 year old barriques.

Tasting Notes

Color: Intense ruby. Bouquet: Intense, harmonic and complex. Smell of ripe red berry fruits, delicate roasted notes and spicy tones. Palate: Fruity and fresh, a well-bodied and pleasant wine. Very good balance, long finish.
