Backsberg Premium Merlot 2016

SKU: 19284
Backsberg Premium Merlot 2016
The skillful use of French oak during maturation tempers the intense aromas of red plums and red berries of the Backsberg Merlot. The succulent palate reveals ripe red fruit notes which are beautifully complemented by a savoury oak quality. Juicy tannins are supported by a subtle smokey background making this a masterfully balanced and complex wine. Beautifully smooth and weighty on the mouth, the Backsberg Merlot works exceptionally well with roasted duck with cranberry compote. With careful cellaring, this full flavoured Merlot has an ageing potential of 5-7 years.
