2017 Merlot, Meinert Wines

When crafting his Merlot, the winemaker gains inspriration by opening bottles of Pomerol from the top chateaux! This has all the wonderful, velvet softness that you expect of Merlot, with ever so much more personality. On the nose, the rounded, supple fruit gains complexity from a roasted pepper and herbal character. The texture is beautifully supple, and the tannin is really refined. A lovely wine with excellent balance.

  • Tasting Note: When crafting his Merlot, the winemaker gains inspriration by opening bottles of Pomerol from the top chateaux! This has all the wonderful, velvet softness that you expect of Merlot, with ever so much more personality. On the nose, the rounded, supple fruit gains complexity from a roasted pepper and herbal character. The texture is beautifully supple, and the tannin is really refined. A lovely wine with excellent balance.
  • Food Matching: Ideal to enjoy with game birds like quail, guinea fowl and duck. Lamb suits the wine’s herbal touches.
  • Vineyard: All of the soils on Devon Crest are deep and well drained with a high clay content. The vineyards are unirrigated often resulting in lower yields but offer greater fruit purity and depth. The vintage of 2015 was spectacular and the wine certainly stays true to this. Average yield 6 tons/ha.
  • Vinification: Fermented with natural yeasts and made in classic, minimal interventionist manner with no extended skin maceration. All the components were vinified separately and matured for 18 months in a selection of first, second, third and fourth fill French oak barrels and racked at intervals as necessary.
