ONE Merlot 2016 SOLD OUT
Gimblett Gravels Merlot
A dense, earthy Merlot with good mid-palate richness, firm, but fine-grained tannins and generous, dark berry fruit, plum and cherry.
Subtle floral aromas provide some lift while notes of dark chocolate bring a sense of warmth and luxuriousness on the nose.
The palate is full bodied with good mid palate richness, and chunky, ripe tannins with a slight rustic edge.
This wine is well matched to a range of meat, game and robust vegetarian dishes. Particularly well suited to grilled meats that pair beautifully with the firm, fine tannin. Also consider with accompaniments that bring a degree of earthiness, such as exotic mushrooms and smoke elements, while compliment the brooding, earthy nature of the wine.
