With the Lergenmüller Merlot Roter Lehm comes a first-class red wine in the wine glass. In this it reveals a wonderfully dense, crimson color. If you give it some air by swirling, this red wine reveals a high density and fullness, which shows in strong church windows at the edge of the glass. Poured into a red wine glass, this Old World red wine offers wonderfully expressive aromas of rum pot, blackberry, mon cheri cherry and plum jam, rounded out by dark chocolate, vanilla and gingerbread spice contributed by aging in wooden barrels.
The Lergenmüller Merlot Roter Lehm delights with its elegantly dry flavor. It was brought to the bottle with only 3.5 grams of residual sugar. As you would expect from a wine premium and site wine segment, this German wine naturally enchants with the finest balance despite all dryness. Taste does not necessarily need sugar. This dense red wine presents itself full-bodied and complex on the palate. Due to the moderate fruit acidity, the Merlot Roter Lehm flatters with a pleasing mouthfeel, without at the same time lacking in juicy liveliness. The final of this red wine from the wine-growing region of the Palatinate, more precisely from Hainfeld, finally convinces with considerable reverberation. The finish is also accompanied by mineral facets of the soils dominated by limestone and clay.
Vinification of the Lergenmüller Merlot Roter Lehm
This wine clearly focuses on one grape variety, and that is Merlot. Only the best grapes were harvested for this wonderfully powerful single-varietal wine from Lergenmüller. In the Palatinate, the vines that produce the grapes for this wine grow on soils of clay and limestone. Merlot Roter Lehm is an Old World wine through and through, as this German wine breathes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. After the hand harvest, the grapes are quickly taken to the press house. Here they are selected and carefully broken up. Then fermentation takes place in small wood at controlled temperatures. After the end of fermentation, the Merlot Roter Lehm is aged for several months in oak barrels.
