Bright crimson red with ruby highlights. On the nose red and black berry aromas merge with touches of spice, vanilla and more chocolatey, earthy notes. A soft and elegant, medium bodied Merlot with delicious red berry flavours that are supported by darker, earthier tones. Maturation with oak adds a creamy, almost nutty complexity to the long, soft finish. Parcels of this wine were matured with French and American oak.
