Domaine du Peras – Merlot 2014
Located in the sunny South of France, Domaine du Peras has been in the same family since 1650. Located in the Languedoc Roussillon in Abeilhan, 15 kilometres north of Beziers, the 38 hectare estate of clay and limestone vineyards is managed and owned by Mathieu Merlet. Domaine du Peras produces wines of great diversity, choosing to focus on single grape varietals. In this sense, he feels that the “consumer know what is in the glass.” Grapes are always harvested at night to maximise freshness and fruitiness. Domaine du Peras is a shining example of affordable, easy-drinking wines that do not sacrifice quality.
Rich fruit with jammy notes is tempered by a lovely fresh blackcurrant-leaf note and supported by a good but not astringent structure. A versatile food wine.
