Edi Simcic Duet 2016
Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
Fully ripe red fruits like cherries, sour cherries, blackberry and blueberry are dominant and accompanied with gentle undergrowth notes. Though made from fully ripe grapes a sense of freshness and liveliness is ever present. Dry on the palate, medium to full bodied. There is plenty of tannins which are still young and could be slightly astringent at this stage but are providing a good ageing potential. Acidities are on the higher side, giving the wine a necessary verticality. Dry, quite rich on the palate, multifaced, fruit intensity and freshness are liaising nicely. With longer clear- cut finish.
Great to serve with grill red meats, lamb, and roasts.
