A lizard as logo for the Merlot

Smooth and sun-loving like the Sand Lizard.

During the hot time of the day lizards can be seen sitting on stones and taking in their warmth, just like our vines. We don`t find big species in our area but the small ones are just as precious. They can sit still for hours just to speed over stones and heated soil at a moments notice. It’s a great sight everytime.

Merlot 2014

Merlot is common in almost every wine growing region of the world. It is quite frequently found in cuveés but genuine wines are not also available. Since repeated experiments with this grape convinced us of the potential of genuine Merlots we started to 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.

Tasting notes

Our Merlot shines in a strong red colour. It impresses with a delicate aroma with nuances of berries and hints of Barrique. IOn the palate it is just as full, complex and with well rounded, lasting tannins.

Food suggestion

Merlot can be had on many occasions and does always combine favourable with red meat, steaks and game.

Ageing potential

Reaches its optimum 2-3 years after the harvest. Can be kept at least for 4-6 years.
