Feathertop Merlot 2021


Merlot 2021 is certainly coming back into vogue with those who are looking for an easy-drinking red wine with just a bit more weight than a Pinot. Blackcurrant, red cherries, and a healthy lick of new French oak for added lift and structure see this new release drinking perfectly now. The acid is well-integrated, ensuring a long-lasting finish. The 2021 vintage saw outstanding conditions for red wine production with cool nights and warm summer days. The grapes were harvested and left on skins for approximately 8 days to extract just the right composition of tannin structure that makes this wine a great weekday drinker. We have aged this wine on lees for an extended period to retain freshness and further soften the tannins in the final blend.
