The elegant Merlot Cheval d'Or shimmers into the glass with a bright purple color. This varietal French wine shows wonderfully expressive notes of black cherries, blueberries, plums and blackberries in the glass. These are joined by hints of dark chocolate, cinnamon and oriental spices.
On the palate, Cheval d'Or's Merlot opens wonderfully dry, grippy and aromatic. On the palate, the texture of this balanced red wine is wonderfully velvety. In the finish, this red wine from the wine-growing region of the Languedoc finally inspires with good length. Once again, hints of blueberry and black cherry show.
Vinification of the Cheval d'Or Merlot
This red wine clearly focuses on one grape variety, namely Merlot. For this exceptionally balanced single-varietal wine from Cheval d'Or, only the best grape material was brought in. After the hand harvest, the grapes are quickly taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. Fermentation follows in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by aging on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally bottled. Once the wine is finished, the Merlot is carefully harmonized.
