Kabola Merlot 2019

Kabola winery is situated in an elevated terraced position on the South West facing side of the Momjan Valley, towards the Adriatic Sea, which can be seen in the distance from the vineyards. This location benefits from dry warm air and therefore there is no need to spray the vines, which supports the maintaining of their EKO Organic certified status of the winery. Kabola was the first vineyard in Istria to achieve EKO Organic certification in 2007. It is also the region in Istria where the red and grey soils touch each other, which gives the wines a special rich flavour.

Tasting Notes

Kabola Merlot 2019 (Vrhunsko) is supreme quality EKO organic certified wine from the Momjan Valley, very close to the Slovenian border and a few kilometres from the hill top town of Buje in North West Istria.
This wine is a classic dark fruit Merlot which is very soft and velvety in the mouth.
After a long maceration the wine is aged in the oak barrels for 18 months. Its colour is intense ruby-red with the reflections of purple. Its slightly herbal aroma is reminiscent of sour cherry and blueberry with the interesting balance of fruity and spicy flavours. This wine goes excellently with red meat, truffles, roast, Istrian ham, “Tagliata“ and cheese with a medium structure. It is best served at 18°C.
