Dalton Reserve Merlot
Merlot sourced from the vineyards of Kerem Ben Zimra, was selectively harvested in late September and earlyOctober. After a warm fermentation and traditional cap wetting methods the wine was pressed out and racked into new French oak barrels. After the completion of malolactic fermentation the wine was stored in the barrel for just over one year.
The Merlot is a dark, rich wine, with sweet fruit and soft tannins, showing the classic varietal qualities of plums, stewed fruit and cherry jam, combined with the subtle spicy shades of toffee vanilla and cloves from the barrels.
