    Wine Profile
    Tasting Notes
    Generous fruity aromas offer red plum, blue & black berry with tempting spicy undertones. Medium in body, the silky palate reveals flavours of raspberry, truffle and mocha.
    Vineyard Notes
    Liquidity’s Merlot plantings from 1996 and 2005 have been cane pruned and then shoot and fruit thinned to produce 3 short tons per acre.
    Winemaker Notes
    Merlot from our Allendale and Lusitano properties were harvested during the first week in October. The fruit was destemmed and crushed into a mixture of tanks and small 1-ton fermentors. The smaller ferments received one punch-down and one pump-over per day. The larger tanks received 2-3 pump-overs per day. After an average of 20 days on skins, the wine was pressed off into mostly French oak barrels (30% new) and barrel-aged for 15 months. The wine was racked twice during the course of its barrel ageing and blended for bottling in March 2019.
    Food Pairing Notes
    Pair this bold red with a grilled T-bone steak, rack of lamb, Margherita pizza, beef stew, or a delicious selection of aged and blue cheeses.
