2010 Maestoso ‘Solo’ Merlot

2010 Maestoso ‘Solo’ Merlot

This is our flagship wine; the jewel in the crown.

In our continuing efforts to ensure that this already breathtaking and astoundingly rich wine is as complete and hedonistic as possible we blended in a small amount of Merlot from our Feuille d’Or vineyard in the Golden Mile.

Maestoso is always opaque in color and 2010 is no different. There is a pronounced nose of blue fruit, smoked meat and café mocha. Huge mouth coating, creamy, ripe tannins leads through to an astonishing finish lasting well over a minute.

  • Di Carne
    Maestoso demands the very best cuts of meat available: grass-fed rib eye steak or a tomahawk steak would do this wine justice. Simple preparations with a rich sauce will let the wine sparkle at its brightest.

    Vegetariano / Vegano
    Roasted celeriac risotto folded with a variety of wild mushrooms or marinated tofu steak with lemon garlic brussel sprouts & potato pave.

  • This wine is 100% Merlot aged in a  blend of 85% large neutral oak barrels, 10% in new French oak, and 5% in 2nd fill French oak barrels. Medium ruby colour. Licorice on the nose with dark fruit and vanilla too.  Very tasty, full bodied, round and dry.  Very mouth filling.  Lots of really ripe purple fruit, plum, cherries, some bitter blackberry leaf, long length with cinnamon spice on the finish. An excellent wine.
