The Terra Tangra Black Label Merlot is a 100% Merlot. The wine was aged in wood for about 3-4 months in 400 liter French oak barrels. Beautiful deep colors in the glass: medium to deep garnet purple color. This wine has on the nose full aromas of red cherry and plum fruit, hints of chocolate, leather, licorice and fresh herbs. Very tasteful glass of red, medium to full in the mouth. You can taste raspberry puree, plum sauce and cherry paste flavors throughout, supported by a velvety texture. Fruitcake notes and red licorice peaks to the finish.

FACT : The bottles are closed with a so-called glass cork called the Vino-Lok. This is a glass-on-glass closure, but in fact the seal is shaped by a round polymer disc that is tasteless, alcohol and acid resistant and even mimics the oxygen transfer of natural cork. This closure eliminates the risk of TCA contaminated wine (cork), has no effect on the aromas of the wine, prevents further and unwanted development of the wine after bottling and provides a stable and leak-free long-term environment for the bottled wine. Vino-Lok looks stylish, no corkscrew is needed and the bottle can be easily resealed.

ABOUT TERRA TANGRA

Terra Tangra was established in 1999. The vineyards are located on the southwestern slopes of the Sakar Mountains and along the Maritsa River, Thracian Valley, Bulgaria. The winery produces a wide selection of red, white and rosé wines – varietal and blend wines, including limited boutique series. Widely recognized for its unique and award-winning wines, Terra Tangra is the first Bulgarian certified organic vineyard. The combination of terroir and expertise of the Terra Tangra oenologists led by the world-renowned Xavier Meade (successor to a family with centuries-old wine traditions from the St. Emilion region, Bordeaux, France) is quickly attracting the attention of international experts and wine connoisseurs. Terra Tangra's wines have won an impressive number of awards.
