Story: Meritage is an international term for a Bordeaux blend. The GMH Meritage is a blend of four of the red varieties grown in the Bordeaux region of France: Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec.
Vintage: The 2018 growing season started slowly, but warmer weather eventually helped to speed things up. Fruit set throughout the region was good and the low rainfall and warm weather from January to April resulted in great sugar development, while a cooler than average March offered ideal night temperatures for colour and flavour development.
Nose: The nose offers attractive, subtle aromas of plums and red berries with a hint of spice adding complexity to the bouquet.
Palate: The palate is smooth and sophisticated with masses of berry and plum flavours, making this a very easy-drinking wine.
Food Pairings: This is a very versatile food wine that will go particularly well with Mediterranean dishes.
Cellaring: Drink now to 2026
