Eagle's Nest Merlot 2016
Meticulous attention in the vineyard and cellar combine to produce a wine with textured fruit purity and tantalisingly firm yet balanced tannins.
This wine exhibits intense flavours of dark berries and spice, with an underlying hint of mocca and tabacco aromas. Meticulous attention in the vineyard and cellar combine to produce a wine with textured fruit purity and tantalizingly firm yet balanced tannins. As with all Eagles’ Nest red’s there is a subtle peppery savouriness that makes this wine both distinctive and gives testament to its origin on a cool wind swept mountainside. The palate is a satisfying combination of perfectly ripe berry fruit, subtle spice, with a persistent mouthfeel. This wine is ready to drink now but will benefit from correct cellaring until 2030.
