Vine in Flames Merlot 2015 / Romanian, red, dry / Great value for money
Merlot is well suited to the soils and climate of the Dealu Mare region and was one of the most widely planted varieties in the region. 2015 was an exceptional year for Merlot. To achieve its fruity characteristic the wine was fermented at around 25°C for up to 20 days. After malolactic fermentation is complete, 70% of the wine was placed in three-year-old American and Romanian oak barrels up to 5 months after which it is blended with the rest of the wine. The wine is dark red in color and has notes of ripe plum just a hint of spice on the nose. Complex flavors of fruit with soft tannins giving this wine its lovely velvety finish. It may be served with barbecued meat and rich pasta sauces.
