Description

This Merlot is made of the selected grapes grown in the outstanding Spern Steiner vineyard. Deep wine with dense structure, full body and gamey texture. The fruitiness fills the mouth perfectly with black cherry, forest fruits accompanied by some chocolate and coffee notes. A wine with great ageing potential, suggested to keep it for a long time!
