Maimai Merlot

Vintage: 2012

Grown on our vineyard in the Bridge Pa Triangle on free draining soils and cropped at
low levels to ensure optimal ripeness is achieved. Managed to maintain balance and
maximum exposure to sunlight the bunches are left to hang and ripen through autumn
until the flavours have developed.

Deep red bowl with youthful purple tinges.

The aromas are red/dark plum, spice and a hint of dried herb characters.

The palate is juicy and refreshing showing well balanced acidity and firm drying tannins.

Enjoy with . . . .
All red meats, game, pasta and cheese dishes.
