Backsberg Merlot 2017

Backsberg Merlot 2017

A mid-palate of sweet raspberry and red plums is complemented by savoury characters from careful oak aging. This wine is beautifully smooth with fine,mouth-filling tannins.

Pairs well with duck, lamb, sirloin steak and pastas, as well as being a delicious partner to chocolate and mint desserts.
