The Almenkerk Merlot is upfront fruity, dominated by red fruit & blackcurrants, while supported by an attractive wooding. It has an unmistakable elegance & poise which follows through on the palate. The lingering graphite tannin structure and distinct minerality makes this a prime example of what cool climate Merlots can be like.
Our Merlot pairs excellently with lighter dishes such as quail, pheasant & pork.
Will drink youthfully for the next 2-3 years and can be cellared comfortably up to 10 years.
