Fat Bastard Merlot

Fat Bastard Merlot is sourced from select vineyards throughout the Languedoc-Roussillon.  The area is known for its stony soil, which naturally limits yields and lends a fresh, fruit-forward character and mature tannins to the final wine.  

Deep, dark-red in colour with elegant notes of plum and black cherry followed by subtle nuances of caraway and black pepper.  On the palate, it is fresh, full and juicy with solid mad palate weight and an expansive, round finish.

This Merlot truly shines when enjoyed with grilled steaks, sausages and burgers with Havarti cheese.  Ideal for your next barbecue!
