Grown on a 1 ha plot in Cemovsko polje and absorbing the best from sunshine and rocks, you may find Merlot with the hallmark of the Montenegrin terroir. Typical for the southern wines, it leaves the impression of fullness, juiciness as well as of soft, velvety tannins. Extracted, mature, creamy with supple acids. Discreet, velvety notes of chocolate and mocca have been interwoven in the impressive aftertaste, completing the potential of this specific variety.
This great wine expresses its loftiness thanks mostly to its luxurious, aromatic structure, led by fruity notes of succulent cherry, currant and blueberry as well as maturity, reached in the heart of our cellar.
Glass: Large tulip red wine glass
It goes pefectly with beef steak in red wine sauce, Wellington beef meat, as well as roasted lamb meat, turkey, grilled red meat.
