Wolffer Estate la Ferme Martin Merlot 2004
Tasting Notes: Dark Red Brick in color. The aroma has wonderful red fruit and cloves with hints of vanilla and spice and a fine touch of oak. The mouth-feel is medium bodied with wonderful coffee, dark chocolate and mark characters. There is great balance between the fruit the tannins and the delicate acidity that is making this wine so food friendly. The finish is very pleasant and has a wonderful classic and rustic feel. Technical Notes: 89% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 5% Pinot Noir. The grapes were hand picked between October 10th and October 31st. After careful hand sorting, the grapes were cold macerated for 4 days at 50º Fahrenheit and the pump over method was applied 3 times a day every 8 hours to extract color and flavor. The overall maceration (skin contact) was between 8-15 days providing structure and mouth-feel. 15% of the wine was aged in Stainless steel tanks and 85% was aged for 12 months in French barrels (10% new oak). In the first two months La Ferme Martin Merlot was 100% completed. The wine was racked four times, carefully blended and bottled unfiltered and unfined. Production was 1,460 cases 750ml and 325 cases 375ml. Serving Suggestions: Serve at room temperature. This wine is an excellent match for a heavier chicken or veal dishes, pizza, burgers, a piece of Brie and of course is great with red meat.
