Merlot dominated blend, supported by a dose of Cabernet Sauvignon (12%) and a touch of Cabernet Franc (2%). Aged in French oak barrels, it is a wine of real depth, with notes of smoke, liquorice and herbs all complementing the bright red stone fruits that burst from the glass. Lively acidity and a prominent tannin structure ensure a long finish that will have you going back for another glass!Red Merlot 14.5%
