The Range

These back vintage All Saints Estate wines are special wines that are carefully cellared deep inside the castle and released only when they are at their peak for your drinking pleasure.

The Wine

When crafting Merlot we aim for a soft medium bodied wine to showcase the soft plummy fruit character. 2011 was an awkward vintage but we have crafted a wine showing medium purple colour with aromas of ripe fruit and some chocolatey character. On the palate the fruit is soft and balanced by gentle tannins.

Variety

Merlot is originally from the Bordeaux region of France where it is coupled to Cabernet Sauvignon in order to flesh out the blend. On its own it makes a rich, plump wine full of ripe berry flavours and soft tannins. It is generally well behaved in the vineyard, however spring is a nervous time as rain or windy weather easily spoils the flowering of this variety.

Winemaking

Picked when fully ripe and fermented for a relatively short time on skins. This short maceration allows full pick-up of colour without extracting too much harsh tannin.  The maturing wine picks up lovely rich vanilla and toast characters from French oak and it is filtered and bottled in the year following vintage. 

Food Matching

Merlot is rightly popular because of its versatility with food, especially tomato-based Italian dishes, and it responds very well to the savoury tastes in many Mediterranean dishes. Try Italian style sausages with fennel and caramelised roasted vegetables.

"Bright, clear red-purple; the bouquet is very fragrant, the varietal expression uncommonly clear, with delicious plum, cherry and cassis fruit. All in all, utterly unexpected." Halliday Wine Companion, July 2013
