Deep crimson in colour.
Aromas of black cherries and sweet-spiced fruits.
The palate displays rich fruit flavours of ripe cherries and toasted coconut. The wine is medium to full bodied with well-balanced acids and firm tannin. The palate has good length with a lingering aftertaste of sweet fruit.
Although drinking well now this Merlot will continue to improve, cellaring well for the medium term.
At De luliis we only release a true varietal Merlot in years when fruit quality is outstanding, our guarantee that this is truly a wine to savour. Great intensity on the palate with round and supple tannins. Excellent early drinking, but it will definitely benefit from 5 years plus cellaring.
