The Merlot grape varietal

Known for being soft, ripe and elegant, most Merlots are easy-drinking reds that go well both with food as well as on their own. This is an approachable grape varietal and is often recommended as the first red wine someone new to red wine should drink.

Tasting notes

Dry, medium-bodied with bright strawberries, raspberries, and red plum fruits. The Stettyn Merlot tends to emphasize late harvesting to gain optimal grape ripeness and produce a ruby red colour and intense red fruits. Subtle oak ageing in small French and American barrels helps round out the fruit forward palate. This wine presents with a soft and approachable style for early enjoyment but can benefit from 2 – 4 years of cellaring.

Food pairing suggestions

Roast or grilled chicken with creamy garlic and mushroom sauce. Lamb chops with a tomato-based sauce and mint jelly.
