Familytree 'Keith' Merlot 2014
Made exclusively for and named after members of our Family Tree Wine Club. This Merlot has a deep cherry red colour with a vibrant purple hue.
“Reminiscent of Keith, this Merlot shows us a characteristically rich, active and vibrant personality with a persistent and measured temperament. Possessing attractive and memorable traits that, once gone, are deeply missed”. Anne Towner
Majority of the time Merlot tends to be blended with its most suited cousin, Cabernet Sauvignon, as they balance each other very well. However, the 2014 vintage perfectly ripened our batch of Merlot so we decided to do a straight Merlot in the Familytree range.
We aim to make the Familytree Wines different to our regular range of wines, to create interest as well as develop and educate our palates.
This 2014 Merlot has a deep cherry red colour with a vibrant pink hue. Attractive aromatics on the nose show plums, raspberries and earthiness with hints of blackcurrants and herbs. Active and juicy on the palate, with fleshly plum and ripe mulberry, subtle black olive and traces of an earthy spiciness. With dry and emery tannins, this measured medium bodied wine with a persistent long finish provides great drinking pleasure now and will improve with dedicated cellaring for up to 8 years.
