Delheim Merlot 2018

Delheim Merlot 2018

Notes of tobacco, dark fruit mainly plum and hints of buchu. A medium bodied and fruit driven style of Merlot, with a subtle structure and silky tannins. Fleshy plums, cigar box and oak undertones with very smooth and silky tannins. Perfect to savour on it’s own but also a great companion to a hearty lamb stew.
