River Retreat Merlot
River Retreat MERLOT
Harvested at ideal ripeness the grapes were crushed and fermented on skins for 7 days with regular pump-overs to extract colour and flavour. After pressing, the wine was aged with select French oak before blending and bottling.
Dark red in colour showing aromas of dark cherry and plum with a touch of black olive; soft and mellow with flavours of plum and mulberry. A touch of oak and soft ripe tannins make this an easy drinking wine with flavour and length.
Great match with tomato based Mediterranean dishes.
