Leopards Leap Merlot 2018

Leopards Leap Merlot 2018

A medium- to full-bodied red fruit-driven wine made in a New World style. Prominent red fruit aromas of cherry and hints of blueberry. Subtle notes of toasted almonds and nutmeg aromas that follow through with earthy undertones. Rich and ripe tannins give this wine its structure and body. Smooth and soft on the palate ensuring a lingering after-taste.

Enjoy with a roasted tomato-based pasta or beef brisket. Also to be enjoyed with rich, cheesy gratins and an open-fire grilled steak. The more adventurous can experiment with d ark chocolate-inspired desserts
