Douglas Green Merlot 2014

Bright ruby with a lighter pink rim. Expressive black cherry , mulberry and dark chocolate aromas that tumble softly across the palate with juicy plum and subtle oak spice intrigue finishing with delectable smooth and juicy fruit intensity.

A soft and juicy medium bodied red that is ready to drink now or within a year or two from Vintage. Great for social sipping around the fire or with sticky ribs, roast lamb, pizza or lasagne.

in the cellar : Fermented on the skins until dry. After pressing, the young wine was allowed to complete malolcatic fermentation on French oak staves then left for a further 3 months for thorough integration and complexity. Final blending and bottling takes place at our cellars in Wellington.
