Merlot is one of the original 6 classic ‘Noble Grape’ varieties and originates in Bordeaux.
The best wines you can make. Eclipse wines are powerful wines of intense flavour and structure. This is a sublime Merlot from the prestigious vineyards of California’s Napa Valley, where ideal climate and soil conditions, combined with refined growing and cellaring techniques, allow for consistent high quality treatment of grape varietals.
Harvested from the highly regarded Stag’s Leap District on the valley’s east bench, this Merlot is dry and medium bodied with a soft, supple fruity palate of plums and red berries. Its characteristic spicy aroma, accentuated with light warm oak, foreshadows the rich, round, smooth and mouth-filling flavour experience, finishing with lengthy elegance.
The addition of ‘easy-to-use’ crushed Merlot grapes enhances the tannin and complexity of this delicious, true to style, red. A must-try for Merlot lovers everywhere.
