Alpha Domus Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon

Alpha Domus

Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon wer crushed to tank and given 4-5days maceration to enhance the colour and fruit flavours. A warm fermentation was followed by extended time on skins of barrels 14-21 days. The wine was pressed into 80% French seasoned barrels. The batches were kept seperate for 12 months prior to blending with a total maturation time of 16 months.

A complex aroma of ripe berry fruit, plums, violet, licorice and hints of thyme. Influences of sweet vanilla and toast result from oak barrel maturation.

Plum and blackberry are supported by clove and spicy notes. Savoury and mocha charecters add complexity. The ripe fruit, sweet oak and gentle tannins create a supple, complex wine with excellent lenght.

Some Cellaring will result in a more harmonious wine with silkier tannins.

Perfect with red meats and full flovoured dishes.
