Excelsior Merlot 2018
This wine shows lovely ripe cherry characters, backed up by smoky coffee and spice notes on the nose. The palate is soft, yet has a good structure for medium term ageing.
45% of the total wine was aged in a mixture of French and American oak for a period of 6 months, whilst the remaining wine was aged in stainless steel tanks.
It can be enjoyed with spring rack of lamb, shank or leg of lamb served pink with fresh herbs or spring vegetables.
