APPEARANCE: Brilliant ruby color with vibrant cherry-red hues.
NOSE: Aromas of ripe plums and raspberries followed later by a hint of mocha latte.

Merlot is one of the 5 grape varieties used typically in Bordeaux blends, but is also very popular as a single cultivar wine. Primarily producing more delicate style red wines, it typically blends well with the bolder Cabernet Sauvignon.
The La Famille wines demonstrate Mischa’s expertise with single and multi-regional blending, becoming the ultimate expression of our tried and tested traditions of sourcing the best fruit. We make these wines to style and then pursue the highest quality benchmarks. The bright, fresh-fruit flavours of La Famille are the perfect expression of Mischa Estate’s signature style.
