  • A crowd pleaser and definitely new world style, 90pt Merlot-Shiraz

    Tastes like
    The main focus during production for this wine boiled down to one thing: balance. Enhancing the wines natural spicy/minty flavours without overwhelming the fruit profile; introducing a well-integrated tannin and long finish without making the wine overly aggressive. It just the right harmony.
    Pairs with
    Consider food pairing options that include lean red meats to balance the wine’s soft tannin, or dark chocolate with cherry or cranberry to embellish its subtle bitter notes. This red is the perfect pairing to the cooler weather and early autumn foods.
    Good for
    As the daylight hours dwindle, what a marvelous juice to be swirling in your glass this autumn. After those day dates in the corn maze, hearty dinners or as you cheer on your favorite football team!

    Why we're drinking this
    A first time kwäf exclusive that Lindsay Groves describes as a “crowd pleaser and definitely new world style”. This Merlot and Shiraz blend make a dynamite pair! You’ll see Merlot blended in many wines to take advantage of its silky-smooth texture and pronounced fruit flavours. Shiraz provides a solid, well-structured base giving you weight, spiciness and a wide range of food compatibility.

    Tasting note
    This is a beautiful expression of Merlot-Shiraz, with smoke, toast, blackberry, black cherry, and spice. Big and plush, velvety tannins, balanced acidity.
