Monro Merlot 2021
Monro Merlot is a special selection of old vineyard Merlot grapes made from juice pressed out from the weight of the skins. Matured in oak barrels for 18 months. A full concentrated flagship red from Villiera. Intensely aromatic with forthcoming berry fruit and hints of chocolate, spice and vanilla. It is well balanced with velvety texture but with enough grip to ensure good length. The complexity will ensure that Monro Merlot should keep for up to 10 years.
Monro Merlot is Villiera’s “Reserve” red bottled under the historic family name “Monro”. It was the obvious choice of brand as it symbolizes the dedication and heritage that are hallmarks of this wine. This wine is designed to appeal to the consumer looking for greater complexity, terroir character and longevity. From 2016 onwards it will be made exclusively from Merlot to highlight the potential for Merlot in our conditions.
