Tasting Notes

NOT AVAILABLE FOR TASTING AT CELLAR DOOR

Swiss International Air Lines Wine Awards 2006 – Bronze

The bounty of our merlot vineyards is almost endless. In this wine the intensely concentrated plum and chocolate flavours gives an almost syrupy consistency on the palate. One could easily be tempted to drink it upon release, but cellaring for a few years will leave the various elements – fruit, acid, oak and tannin-harmoniously integrated.
