VILLA ZORILOR Merlot

CELLAR:  The wine is produced and bottled at Villa Zorilor - Vinarte Winery.

CLIMATE: Temperate-Continental, with characteristic parameters for the South Carpathian ecological region.

VINIFICATION: The parcels producing the grapes destined for this variety offer optimal climate and soil conditions. The harvesting is done by hand, and at the same time a quality selection is being made. Next come the crushing and de-stemming. The must ferments in temperature-controlled stainless steel cisterns, during the same period the carefully-monitored maceration also takes place. Then the wine is racked into barriques, where the malolactic fermentation and maturation take place for 6 – 9 months, then the wine is bottled. 
 
TASTING NOTES: Appearance: clear, purple-red color, bright, purple reflexes. Nose: Mellow red fruit, aromas of coffee and spices, slight vanilla and wood tints. Palate: dry, intense, strong body, good texture, balanced tannins, lasting aftertaste.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS: the optimum serving temperature is of 16 ºC. One may serve it with red meat dishes, small-sized venison, traditional Romanian meat-based dishes or mature cheeses.

AGING POTENTIAL: the wine may be aged in bottles (4-6 years) in cellar conditions, thus acquiring a velvety texture and a complex bouquet.
