Overview

Lush, mouthfilling sweet black cherry and prunes elegantly cover the palate with nuances of sweet spice. On the middle palate, generous mouth filling summer berry pie cover the palate with lots of sweet baking spice. The after palate begins with sweet fruit then tightens up with fine fruit and oak tannins. Great flavour and composition. The Christmas spice cuts through the plum pudding-like flavours.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Intense crimson with youthful purple hue.

Aroma

Lifted, elegant notes of blue fruits, blood and of course Dam- son plums with a dash of spice. All accented by bramble and dark chocolate.

Palate

Lush, mouthfilling sweet black cherry and prunes elegantly cover the palate with nuances of sweet spice. On the middle palate, generous mouth filling summer berry pie cover the palate with lots of sweet baking spice. The after palate begins with sweet fruit then tightens up with fine fruit and oak tannins. Great flavour and composition. The Christmas spice cuts through the plum pudding-like flavours.

The finish is silky with fine tannins and dark chocolaty notes tickle throughout the lengthy palate with a youthful and pretty finish.

Food Matching

Perfectly matched with all richly flavoured foods, meats, stews, game or mature hard cheeses. Alluring on the palate, our Merlot commands company with food and friends.

Winery Profile

Our 5V Wine Company is so named as our talented young winemaker Elena Brooks famously said “all you need to know about a wine is the five Vs: Vintage Variety Vineyard Vigneron and Volume.”

The old vineyard plough on our label embodies the 5V wine company, what we lack in finery we make up for with flavour. We make wine that works! The 5V Wine Company is an independently owned and operated winery with a fierce commitment to making the best wines we can from family vineyards. We don’t take ourselves as seriously as we take our wines, but agree with Elena, that the truth is not out there but in the glass.
