The wine

Do you fancy a glass of red wine? How about a really good Merlot? Let's say it should be juicy, aromatic, delicate and harmonious, right? It seems a lot to ask for, but it isn't. You'll find it all and much more besides in a bottle of Merula.

This wondrous wine comes from the Llengua Llarga parcel, on the Mas Sapera estate, 600 metres high. There, the Merlot variety offers very low yields and grows in a cool environment, accumulating aromas and gaining in balance. The parcel is usually harvested during the last fortnight of October, after maturation has occurred slowly until the attainment of succulent grapes with concentrated flavours and smooth skins. Knowing the meticulous care taken by the producers, Pere and Toni, and having visited the estate that gives rise to these Merlot grapes, one can understand perfectly well how such delicacy comes about, but if Pontons is too far away and you can't get to visit the DG Viticultors vineyards, then enjoy a glass of this charming Merlot instead.

The pomegranate and blackberry aromas intermingle with subtle oak and spice nuances in a wine that's a paradigm of elegance and balance. It's a powerful aroma, toasty, hinting at chocolate, fruit in liqueur, liquorice and incense. On the palate it's juicy, delicately spicy and has very rounded tannins. It gently caresses the inside of the mouth, and moves through elegantly taking us to a fresh, long and very pleasant finish.
