Merlot 2012Current Wines | Wines from 2012
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 make 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.
This Merlot shines in a typical dark garnet-red colour. Its bouquet is reminisent of red berry flavours and offers hints of smoky tones. A full body and pronounced tannins leave a strong impression on the palate. The finish is tart but very pleasant to drink.
Merlot can be drunk on many occasions and will always combine favourable with strong plain food.
Reaches its optimum 2-3 years after the harvest. Can be kept at least for 4-6 years.
