Description

Kabaj Merlot

Kabaj 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.

Top tip: Decant for an hour before serving.

Ageing potential: 2018 – 2028.
