This fruit was picked in early February 2010 at the end of a wonderful wine growing summer in Broke.
The fruit was cold soaked for 2 days then fermented in open fermenter for 6 days with frequent cap plunging.
After ferment, the wine was pressed to barrels. Malolactic fermentation was carried out in oak, followed by maturation in American & French oak barriques for 16 months.
This wine displays an attractive crimson red colour. It exhibits cherry, plums, spearmint mocha and all spice characteristics. This medium bodied Merlot has a supple & fleshy mid palette showing soft tannins.
Merlot and Lamb are always a match made in heaven and it is just sensation all with all things Italian!
