Tobacco Road 2016 Merlot - Gapsted Wines

VINEYARD REGION: King Valley

THE WINE: This wine displays a deep garnet colour. The nose shows rich, ripe blackberry and fruitcake aromas. These wonderful, rich aromas lead a fleshy palate, bursting with ripe plum and dark berry characters. The wine spent 10 months in French oak barrels, and as a result subtle oak imparts delicate spice and additional complexity, leading to a soft, velvety finish.

FOOD MATCHES: Lamb of any description is the perfect match with this wine, from the humble roast to lamb and rosemary sausages.

PEAK DRINKING: Now-2019

WINE ANALYSIS:  Alc/Vol 14.0%  -  PH 3.48  -  TA 5.94
