Merlot 2017

Merlot 2017



Grapes are picked by hand, placed into small lug boxes, and transported to the cellar in a refrigerated truck. In the cellar, the whole berries are double-sorted with optical sorting and then gravity-fed into wood fermenters. Each batch is cold-soaked for a few days and then slowly brought up in temperature, where fermentation takes place naturally. After fermentation, 5 days of maceration on the skins are allowed. The wines were aged for 24 months in 60% new French oak, bottled unfiltered, and then bottle-aged for 3 years.

Black Forest gateau aromas and deep plum aromas with spice hints are present on the nose. The palate is plush and enveloping, with black cherry, plum, and understated spice notes. rounded, soft, and velvety textured, but with a core of ripe, dark fruit. The oak is beautifully integrated and supportive without being dominant. Elegant, refined, and well structured, the wine is a good reflection of an excellent vintage, despite being in the middle of a drought. Long and rewarding tail.
