Merlot 2009Current Wines | Wines from 2009
Merlot is common in almost every wine growing region of the world but its potential is very often largly underestimated. Whereas is is frequently found in cuveés, genuine wines are relatively uncommon. Since repeated experiments with this variety convinced us of the potential of genuine Merlots we produce such wines and let the results speak for themselves. We have learned that the Merlot will yield first-class wines that can easily convince every diligent taster of the potential of this variety when it is planted at a suitable location and treated skillfully.
Our Merlot 2009 shines in a typical dark garnet-red colour. Its bouquet is very intense and offers an unobtrusive grassy note with a breath of smoky nuances. A heavy body and pronounced tannins leave a strong impression on the palate. The finish is tart but sill pleasant to the taste.
Merlot can be drunk on almost every occasion and will always suit well to strong plain food.
Reaches its optimum 2-3 years after the harvest. Can be kept at least for 4-6 years.
