Sileni The Triangle Merlot packs aromas of plum, spice, and berry fruit that are rich and savory. Dark mocha and dark berry flavors linger on the palate, leading to a smooth, dark chocolate finish.
What distinguishes Sileni The Triangle Merlot from others, you may ask? It is the land. The grapes used in this fine wine grow in one of the oldest in the Heretaunga Plains. The Merlot grapes are grown on volcanic dirt that contains clay, basalt, oxidized iron, and pumice. These components, known as red metals, give the soil a red colour, which is what The Bridge Pa Triangle Wine District is known for. The Bridge Pa Triangle Wine District is nestled in Hawke’s Bay on the East Coast of New Zealand’s North Island. With over 20 years of vine age and the exceptional environment of this sub-region, this produces ideal circumstances for Merlot grapes.
Sileni The Triangle Merlot works exceptionally well with roast meat, braised duck, or a strong-flavored hard cheese.
