The Armstrong Merlot is the latest wine to be made in our tribute series which honours the legacy of Coombe Farm forefathers.
George Armstrong was the only son of Dame Nellie Melba. He and his beloved wife Evie were the parents of Pamela, Lady Vestey.
2013 was an exceptional year for Coombe Farm Merlot and this tribute wine has been blended from a selection of the very best barrels. The wine underwent extended maceration and time on skins. French oak barrels were used of which 40% were new.
It is a rich, brooding Merlot with wonderfully ripe fruit, spicy flavours and mouth filling tannins. It is an intense and stylish wine that will only improve with careful cellaring.
