ROBUST RED

Whitecliff Vineyard and Winery 2016 Merlot Malbec 

  • 60% Merlot and 40% Malbec, all from NY grapes, with lots of heavy and savory notes.
  • Blending of Merlot and Malbec is popular in South America and Australia; so Whitecliff decided to try it here in New York.
  • The wine is a fragrant marriage of black cherry from the Merlot, with a lovely floral note from the Malbec. The tannins and acidity will complement a wide range of strongly flavored foods, from steak to stews, and from spicy sausage to Asian pork or beef dishes.
