Zema Estate Sparkling Merlot 2018
Velvety soft with an exciting arrangement of ripe black fruits, silky tannins and fine mousse.
After maturing in French oak for 18 months, a specific selection of barrels were chosen to make this Sparkling Merlot.
The base wine was secondary fermented using the Charmat method to achieve its fine bead and mousse. A small addition of Vintage port contributes to the roundness of the palate and accentuates the finish.
Eggs Benedict, Dark Chocolate, Roast Pork.
After spending 18 months in barrel, blackberries and fruit cake are laced with brown and baking spices. Delicate blue fruits ease their way in before plums take hold. A deft touch of mint sneaks up late too. Wonderful persistence is delivered with elegance. Great stuff - I'm a big fan.- Qwine
