Kabaj MerlotKabaj Merlot is a beautiful, classic Merlot. Deep ruby colour. The bouquet offers ripe red and dark fruits with layers of chocolate and wood. The dry and full-bodied palate has a bright acidity, velvety tannins and a ripe fruity character. Dark plum, blackberry jam, red cherries and currant fruit coated with just the right dose of chocolate nuances. Elegant and fresh from start to finish.
100% Merlot. The grapes come from Kabaj's 15 hectares of local vineyards in the Brda region.
Manual harvesting before 30 days maceration in inox, wood and concrete vessels. The wine ages for 4 years in 225L French oak barrels and an additional 6 months in the bottles.
