LA FAMILLE MERLOT 2019 QUICK NOTES
APPEARANCE: Bright ruby in colour with a vibrant cherry rim.
NOSE: Red berry aromas are deepened by aromas of French oak, cassis and a hint of coffee beans.
PALATE: Sweet and sour cherry with ripe, fruity tannins that guides the development of red fruit flavours through to flavours of French oak with a subtly spicy finish.
FOOD PAIRING: Compliments camembert or brie cheeses, and pairs nicely with creamy Italian pastas or local game, followed afterwards by dark chocolate or cheesecake.
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.
