Saint George Merlot 2019
Jordan is a cold country with a hot sun. Ample differences in day and night temperatures are responsible for the unique taste of the wines. The Zumot family vineyards are framed organically and produce fruit with concentrated aromas because of this temperature difference. This Merlot grows in vineyards oriented East-West, unlike Europe’s southern exposure orientation. This orientation keeps the grape bunches aerated during growth and maturation, and allows Merlot to ripen. It is a harmonious wine, exquisitely balanced, velvety and long lasting.
This Merlot has a deep purple color with ruby hints. It has a classical note of menthol, cedar wood with hints of blueberry and green pepper. Because of the ample sun, it is supple, juicy and fresh with round tannins.
