Merlot (19) Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2019 and older
Great wine is made in the vineyard and this is even more true if the grape is grown on the right soils in the right area. For the red cultivars, Merlot is probably the most suitable for our terroir at Nitida. The canopy of the Merlot is completely opened right after flowering to let in as much sunlight into the canopy as possible.
Longs to be paired with an Ostrich steak and roasted wild mushrooms on the side.
