Backsberg Merlot 2019

Backsberg Merlot 2019

A mid-palate of sweet raspberry and red plum is complemented by chocolate flavours 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.
