Mount Riley Merlot 75cl 14.5%

Benchmark wine for Mount Riley and shows soft plummy characters as well as soft tannins and a little bit of spice. The inclusion of around 10% Malbec gives it a little extra body and a nice rustic touch that provides added interest. Excellent value.

About Mount Riley Merlot ... The grapes for this wine were grown in Marlborough. The merlot is sourced from two vineyards, one in the heart of the Wairau Valley and one in Seventeen Valley.  The grapes were harvested in excellent condition and the dry season allowed them to fully mature.

This wine is a blend of 86% Merlot and 14% Malbec.  The wine was fermented on skins and carefully pumped over to facilitate colour and flavour extraction.  The wine was oak aged for 13 months in new and seasoned American and French barriques before blending.
