JUST RELEASED.... Our first release of a Palmaris Merlot grown in our Outer Coastal Plain vineyard. This wine is 100% Merlot made from grapes harvested from our vineyard on September 24, 2015 at 24.2 degrees Brix. The macerated must was fermented in contact with the skins for 14 days and subseqently transferred to oak for a period of 17 months. Malolactic fermentation was effectuated and the wine was bottled in August, 2017.
The Palmaris 2015 OCP Merlot is a full bodied red that needs aeration to develop its fullest nose and character, so please decant prior to serving. We hope that you will enjoy this fine wine with a fine meal while in the company of good friends.
