MILLS REEF ELSPETH GG MERLOT

$44.99

A stunning Merlot exuding a distinct classical blackcurrant character, with complex layers of sweet berry fruit, caramel and chocolate, interwoven within an unctuous texture. Beautifully integrated oak and fine round tannins complete the finishing touches to this delicious wine. Enjoyable immediately, it will also cellar magnificently.

Description

TASTING NOTE

This distinguished Merlot was made from ultra-premium grapes grown on eighteen year old vines in our Mere Road Vineyard, located in the celebrated stony Gimblett Gravels district of Hawke’s Bay.
The grapes were handpicked at ideal physiological ripeness and balance on 27th April at 23.4° Brix.

The fruit was destemmed, retaining whole berries which were cold-soaked for two days then inoculated with selected yeast. The cap was plunged twice daily throughout ferment, until dry.
