TASTING NOTE

A rich and alluring Merlot. On the nose, it opens with aromas of baked plums and delicate violet notes. The palate offers flavours of cherries and hints of earthiness, with well-structured tannins and a long, satisfying finish.

Fog Mountain Merlot is produced from carefully selected Merlot grapes grown throughout California, but predominantly from the North Coast. The grapes are selected from vineyards that practice sustainable agriculture.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

Fog Mountain pays homage to the Californian mountain ranges and the cooling fog, which have a huge influence on Californian viticulture. The mountains offer unique climatic conditions and varied soils on which to plant vines, while the fog, with its cooling effect, creates the ideal microclimate, prolonging the growing season and allowing the grapes to fully ripen. All the fruit for these wines is sourced exclusively from sustainably farmed vineyards throughout California, predominantly from the North Coast.

The wines are aged for six months, partially in oak, to round off the finish and add a hint of spice. The Merlot has aromas of baked plums and delicate floral notes on the nose, a palate of dark cherries with well-structured tannins and a long finish. The Cabernet Sauvignon, which includes a small amount of Petit Verdot and Merlot, presents luscious flavours of dried plums, medjool dates, redcurrants and bright berries with soft tannins and a polished, lingering finish.
