Merlot 2018, Guardian Peak

£11.55 per bottle

About this wine

The 2018 Guardian Peak Merlot displays fresh, ripe red fruit flavours of figs and plums supported by soft, discreet tannins which create a well-balanced, elegant Merlot with a round, juicy finish. This wine shows a wonderful structure for a wine best consumed at a young age.  A great partner with pizza, bolognese and stews.
