Wente Vineyards - Vineyard Selection Sandstone Merlot 2015Diverse Fruit Flavours
Next in stock 20th Jul 2020
The 2015 Sandstone Merlot is a great display of Bordeaux grapes from hillside and valley ﬂoor vineyards, each of which gives distinct aromatics and structure to the wine.
The estate-grown and certiﬁed sustainable vineyards that make up this wine are harvested, fermented and aged separately in barrel for about a year before they are blended together. Karl D. Wente, Fifth Generation Winemaker, added Petite Sirah to the blend which then ages for another 6-12 months.
Although lighter in structure than a Cabernet Sauvignon, this Merlot combines solid, yet silky tannins with diverse fruit ﬂavors to make a lasting impression.
