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 is common in almost every wine growing region of the world. It is quite frequently found in cuveés but genuine wines are also not uncommon. Since repeated experiments with this grape convinced us of the potential of genuine Merlots we started to bottle them on their own 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 grape’s potential if it has been planted at a suitable location and treated skillfully
Our Merlot shines in a strong red colour. It impresses with its delicate spicyness and hints of berries. On the palate it is smooth and full while nice tannins dominate the finish.
Merlot is an excellent accompaniment to dark, grilled or roasted meat, steaks and game dishes.
Reaches its optimum 2-3 years after the harvest. Can be kept at least for 5-6 years.
