The things that make good Merlot great are found in abundance here. Dark fruits and depth from all directions, and a herbaceous note that shows the quality of this bottle.
The Four Point Lowdown
- All the dark berries, spice and herb you expect in a merlot
- Soft tannins make for the smoothest drinking
- Pairs well with the shankiest lamb
- Perfect for evenings in with nothing to do
About this wine
This is an evening wine. Just as the day is ebbing away, and you settle in for a night with a good (or maybe not) movie. Slide a bottle of this onto the coffee table and you'll sit through anything with a smile.
In the Soli Merlot, depth meets roundness in a swirling seduction of warm spice and black fruits. There are notes of the finest homemade jam in the flavours, and the soft tannins make for delightful drinking.
What Makes It So Grape?
Produced in Thracian Valley, Bulgaria
Edoardo Miroglio was inspired to begin winemaking in Bulgaria after learning the local traditions for creating divine drinks.
Bulgaria isn't the first place that comes to mind when you think of wine but the climate and soil allow those who wander far to find real gems.
