2018 Primeur Merlot

$30.00

Our Primeur or ‘new wine’ style is made from Merlot grapes and fermented quickly to minimise the time on skins, and reduce the influence of tannin.  It is a softer style of red wine that is harvested, made and released for sale in the same year. The result is a fresh, fruit driven wine with sweet elegant fruit, a plummy taste and hints of chocolate.

For optimum enjoyment of this wine it is best served slightly chilled, and for those that take their wine seriously 13°C is ideal.  It is made for immediate drinking but can be kept for up to five years if desired.
