Monro Merlot is Villiera’s Reserve red bottled under the historic family name Monro. Optimally ripe Merlot grapes were hand harvested from selected blocks of old vines and the low yields ensured concentration. The healthy fruit was destalked with only 70% being crushed and the balance remained in the form of whole berries. In the cellar, both the pump-over and punch-down systems were used for extraction purposes and a portion was taken through to the final blending stage without the use of preservatives. After pressing, the wine was racked to French oak barrels (65% new) for malolactic fermentation and maturation. After two barrel rackings and 18 months, the wine was blended and bottled. Bottled at 13.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Pronounced aromas of blackberries and cassis. With hints of sweet spice and vanilla.

Palate: On entry the wine leads of dark red fruit notes like blackberries and hints of black tea. Mid-palate has a lovely velvety texture.

Finish: Oak spice notes linger on the finish with a powdery firm tannin structure.
