Shannon VineyardsMount Bullet Merlot 2017
Availability: 11 in stock
The Mount Bullet Merlot from Shannon Vineyards showcases quintessential varietal expression, owing to its cool climate terroir and minimal intervention winemaking approach. Slow ripening of the grapes ensures that sugar, pH, acid and fruit elements are seamlessly poised, resulting in an elegantly balanced profile. Expect to encounter exquisite earthy tones alongside sun-ripened black cherry and plum characters. The wine shows a firm tannic backbone that is well integrated within its voluptuous body, while natural acidity adds freshness and focus to the palate.
