Reserve Merlot 2017
Visual: Dense and dark black cherry colour with nuances of purple with heavy, slow legs. Nose: Intense and aromatic bouquet of wild red berries, dark cherries, wildflowers and vanilla beans with nuances of chocolate and mocha. The second nose is showing more ripe blackberries, a hint of dried flowers as well as undergrowth. Palate: Broad and refined attack on ripe blackberries, a firm, structured wine with a nice tension balanced with a lush texture. The midpalate expresses more fruit with layers of red and black wild berries, oak spice, dried flowers and creamy cacao beans. The final shows length and tension on fruit, minerality and firmer tannins with great elegant texture.
