De Trafford Merlot
Attractive deep red colour. Lovely spice, plums and other beguiling dark fruit on the nose. Hints of fynbos (herbal) notes and complimentary oak component. These flavours follow through on the big, but fine palate. Generous alcohol, complex fruit, firm fine tannins and acidity balance each other to give a plush mouthfeel and lingering aftertaste. Best now to 2035. Ideal with baked pasta (such as cannelloni) and various light red meat dishes such as veal, lamb and pork.
