About this wine

The Catherine Marshall 2016 Amatra Merlot Catherine Marshall 2016 Amatra Merlot exudes bright, fresh black plums.  The plush purple fruit flavours are supported by a vibrant thread of fresh acidity from the addition of a small splash of Cabernet Franc to harmoniously balance the opulently textured mid core palate weight.  In its youth, broad and bright purple fruit is forward and over time will evolve to stewed prunes, blonde tobacco and hazelnuts with seamless, mellowed tannins on the finish. Wine should mature well for 8 to 10 years under optimal cellar conditions.
