A bottle of Merlot

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 not so widely available. Since repeated experiments with this grape 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 grape if it has been planted at a suitable location and treated skillfully.

Made from organic grapes. AT-BIO-402

Tasting notes

This Merlot 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 drink.

Food suggestion

Merlot can be drunk on many occasions and will always combine favourable with strong plain food.

Ageing potential

Reaches its optimum two to three years after the harvest. Can be kept at least for four to six years.
