This Spanish red wine is produced by the Celler Augustus Forum winery.
The two varieties were separately harvested. After being cold-soaked for 3 days, they were fermented in stainless steel tanks.
After that, they completed malolactic fermentation in 300-litre oak barrels and underwent a 7-month ageing period.
Filtered and clarified, Augustus Merlot Syrah 2016 was aged for a further 6 months in tanks.
Drink this red wine from Penedès until 2021.
The red wine Avgvstvs Merlot-Syrah has a dense, medium-high garnet robe with a violet rim.
This blend of Merlot and Syrah from Penedès shows intense aromas of ripe red fruit, some floral and vegetal remembrances and suggestions of vanilla, pepper and clove.
Bold and vigorous, this red wine aged in oak has a great freshness and a crisp acidity that makes it pleasantly drinkable. Fruit compote, cocoa, undergrowth and spices. This wine by Augustus Forum has a medium, balsamic finish.
