The second iteration of the MTGA Single Barrel has arrived! Following the trend that the prior vintage began the 2014 release takes the greatness that Merlot has to offer and lets it shine. This year’s lot actually came from a light pressing cycle that combined multiple smaller fermentation lots. The gentle pressing allowed for a bit more structure to be extracted while keeping the rest of the characteristics intact. During the aging process 8% free-run wine was blended back into this pressed lot to create what the Single Barrel is today.
Without a doubt the Single Barrel continues to be our exceed expectations and we hope it will do the same for you!
