Malbec and Merlot
Soft, elegant, blackberry, plum and strawberry
Malbec originated in Bordeaux until they realised it didn’t ripen as successfully in it’s moderate climate. The Southwest France has a much hotter climate than the rest of the country, therefore giving Malbec the perfect growing conditions. The winery has been headed up by the Bernède family since before the French revolution. The family farm 60 hectares of vines in the Lot Valley. Philippe Bernède makes a Malbec and Merlot blend that is full and round with lots of red fruit and oak characteristics.
