The Coco Chocolate Merlot 2018 75cl 14% ABV
The idea was to create a wine with dark fruit that is finely integrated with coffee/mocha flavours. To achieve this, the wine was fermented and aged on well roasted French oak staves. The Coco has a good colour, nose shows cherry fruit with mocha/dark chocolate flavours.
A lot of tannins in the wine, but soft and very approachable, finely integrated. The palate is mouth filling, surprisingly complex for such a young wine.
