Mud House Merlot 2019
Classic Hawke’s Bay Merlot with mocha spice and dark cherries.
Classic aromas of spicy fruit cake, dark cherries and mocha spice.
The palate is full with flavours of blackcurrants, liquorice and dried herb. It is medium bodied with fine grain tannins; a soft yet concentrated wine.
Juicy eye fillet with a pomegranate jus, roasted beets and steamed broccolini.
Now and will continue to reward for 3+ years.
Once harvested, the fruit was brought into the winery where it was de-stemmed into a stainless steel fermenter. The fermentation took 10 days, during which it was pumped over twice a day to help extract colour, fruit flavour and tannins. The wine then went through a full malolactic fermentation in stainless steel before being fined using natural methods prior to bottling.
