Merlot's soft plummy fruit character is often used to soften Cabernet Sauvignon in red blends, and is also a delicious single varietal wine.
A dense and deeply coloured wine, full of concentrated black and red cherry flavour, and hints of leather and spice. The palate has a layered texture, with muscular tannins providing a long finish.
Plush red and black fruit flavours of strawberry, cherry and blackberry form the backbone, overlaid with notes of vanilla and green tobacco leaf. Soft, ripe tannins provide a great sense of volume.
The fruit for this wine was sourced from a range of sites across the Aconcagua Valley, where the Mediterranean climate and cold nights encourage good fruit purity.
A Majestic favourite for many years, beloved of staff and the wine press alike.
