Major Series Merlot 2017, Ernie Els Wines

£19.65 per bottle

About this wine

The Ernie Els Major Series Merlot has all the hallmarks of a classic Merlot with ripe plums and earthy notes supported by a core of minerality and fleshed out with ripe strawberry, forest underfloor, a hint of chocolate, and a deepening of dark black berry laced with a hint caramel and oak spice. The savoury palate is coated in sweet attractive oak with distinct salty edge. Medium bodied, fresh yet serious with good line of acidity and clean to end.
