Merlot (19) Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2020 and older
The wine has a deep, dark colour. Concentrated aromas of ripe cherries as well as mulberry fruit flavours, plums and tobacco leaf greet you on the nose. The attractive fruit flavours from the nose follow through to the complex palate along with olive-like nuances. The wine has a refreshing acidity as well as a lingering length on the finish.
The Dome Merlot 2017 pairs exceptionally well with substantial foods including grilled or barbequed lamb, beef, kudu, ostrich and springbok.
Serve this wine between 16-18 C for the best results.
