More information about H3 Horse Heaven Hills Merlot - Columbia Crest

The barrel-aged H3 Horse Heaven Hills Merlot from the Washington winegrowing region offers a dense purple red in the glass. The bouquet of this red wine from Washington seduces with notes of blueberry, mulberry, black currant and blackberry. If we trace the aromatics further, black bread, gingerbread spice and oriental spices come in, enhanced by the oak influence.

The Columbia Crest H3 Horse Heaven Hills Merlot presents itself to the wine drinker as delightfully dry. This red wine never appears coarse or meager, as one might expect from a wine in the high quality wine range. This velvety and dense red wine is full-bodied and complex on the palate. In the finish, this youthful from the Washington wine region finally inspires with considerable length. Again, hints of mulberry and blackberry show.

Vinification of the H3 Horse Heaven Hills Merlot from Columbia Crest

This powerful red wine from the USA is made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merlot grapes. When the perfect physiological ripeness is ensured, the grapes for the H3 Horse Heaven Hills Merlot are harvested exclusively by hand without the help of coarse and less selective full harvesters. After the harvest, the grapes are taken to the press house by the fastest route. Here they are sorted and gently broken up. Fermentation then takes place in small wood at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by aging for 18 months in French and American barrels.

Food Recommendation for the H3 Horse Heaven Hills Merlot from Columbia Crest

This North American is best enjoyed tempered at 15 - 18°C. It is perfect as an accompanying wine to braised chicken in red wine, vegetable couscous with beef meatballs, or roasted calf's liver with apples, onions and balsamic vinegar sauce.
