M is for Merlot, M is for Malbec, it's a maverick wine, a meeting of minds! The minds are from Bordeaux and 150km east in Cahors. Blending their grapes, plummy Merlot and dark-fruited Malbec, and ageing in oak, the wine's all supple fruit and spice.
Step 1 take a special parcel of exceptional Bordeaux Merlot. Vinify it using a special no-sulphur method for maximum, gulpable fruit. Step 2: blend with a parcel of Malbec from its original French homeland, ancient Cahors. From growers who know how to draw out the grape's gorgeous black fruit and not its mouthcoating tannins. Step 3: age it in barrels to add notes of sweet spice to all that glorious fruit. The winemakers were so taken by their experimental cuvée, they insisted we shared it with you! This blending is a total No-No for Bordeaux's stuffy appellation laws (and Cahors too) and an utter Yes-Yes for customers who love ripe, smooth-fruited reds. So silky, you can drink it on its own. Or with just about anything. No rules here!
"M x M = Marvellous Squared! A delicious, cheeky red"
