Domaine de Belle-Vue, 'Ornate' Merlot 2015
Domaine de Belle-Vue Merlot - organic small batch wine, only 60 bottles brought into Australia! This wine is produced from tiny yields of hand harvested grapes, fermented using natural yeasts and aged in Amphora pots. The winery is near Nantes, in the Loire Valley.
Not your typical Merlot from Bordeaux. This is lighter style of Merlot which is plush, juicy and velvety. Purple fruit, pastilles, spice, dark and red cherries, light smokiness, leather, earthiness, delicate fine tannins and a long finish. Fantastic wine, that incorporates the flavours of a fuller bodied red into a light summer red. Will benefit from decanting.
