QUINTA DE SANT'ANA MERLOT 2012
The Merlot grapes in 2012 were pure, characterful and separated from the usual blend to produce this fantastic monovarietal wine. On the nose, this wine is unmistakably Merlot; intense dark fruits of juicy plum and blueberry kept fresh and complex with notes of mint and eucalyptus. These flavours continue on the palate, with an added dash of chocolate and cacao, and the lingering finish reinforces the minerality of the wine, with touches of graphite and chalk. Fantastic structure, with mouth-filling but fine tannins, our signature vibrant acidity and a lovely softness from time in new French oak barrels.
Ideal for dishes full of flavour, Pork Loin and rich vegetarian dishes such as roasted aubergines and creamy, flavoursome wild mushrooms.
