Darling Cellars Reserve Six Tonner Merlot 2019

Darling Cellars Reserve Six Tonner Merlot 2019

This complex but also elegant wine spoils you with flavours of raspberry, ripe red plum, vanilla, coffee, liquorice, chocolate and nuances of tobacco. This wine has an elegant structure with velvety tannins and a surprisingly lengthy aftertaste. The balance is simply near perfect!

Enjoy this on its own or with roasted duck breast or roasted tomato and basil pasta.
