Dry Sauvignon Blanc (<5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower) (Merlot) Unwooded any vintage
The Almenkerk Merlot 2014 is upfront fruity, dominated by red fruit & blackcurrants, while supported by an attractive wooding. It has an unmistakable elegance & poise which follows through on the palate. The lingering graphite tannin structure and distinct minerality makes this a prime example of what cool climate Merlots can be like.
Will drink youthfully for the next 2-3 years and can be cellared comfortably up to 10 years.
Our Merlot pairs excellently with lighter dishes such as quail, pheasant & pork.
