Mitterberg Merlot I.G.T.

Kandlerhof-Merlot

The Merlot is a rarity, a jewel, on our estate. We only produce 300 bottles a year whereby we try to get everything out of the grapes. The result is a concentrated and velvety wine. It stays in a used barrique barrel for four months and so maintains its fruity aroma and smooth taste with occasional hints of vanilla.
