2017 GMH Meritage 2017 - South Australia

2017 Meritage

South Australia

Story: Meritage is an international term for a Bordeaux blend. This Meritage is made from four of the red varieties grown in the Bordeaux region of France: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec.  

Vintage: Spring and summer were cooler than normal with above average rainfall and the 2017 vintage happened much later than usual. The combination of those factors and dry weather for most of the harvest resulted in higher yields and excellent quality across regions.

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 2025
