2017 Pertaringa Lakeside Red Meritage 2017 - South Australia

2017 Lakeside Red Meritage

South Australia

Story: One of the most classic wine combinations of all time, this Red Meritage is inspired by the Old World and features the perfect blend of Petit Verdot, Malbec and Merlot.

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 lively, plummy aromas with hints of ripe cherries and dried herbs, all melded together in this attractive bouquet.

Palate: The well-structured palate displays bright, appealing flavours of plums and dark berries with a beautifully balanced finish.

Food Pairings: In true European style, it's a particularly food-friendly wine - try it with a spinach, caramelised garlic and red pepper pithivier!

Cellaring: Drink now to 2025
