Malta Food and Wine

Where and what to eat and drink in Malta

Melqart Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot 2004, Meridiana Wines
Wine type: Full bodied
Country and Region: Malta
Colour: Red
Category: Something special
Appearance: Deep red with a short rim, showing signs of youthfulness. Nose: Intense fruity aromas from both grape varieties are evident in form of black currants, cherries and hints of cedar. Palate: Full bodied and fruity with silky soft tannins that blends beautifully with the fruitiness and acidity.
Conclusion: This full bodied and fruity blend would be a very appealing match to a chicken dish with a rich sauce. Or try it with stuffed mushrooms with Stilton cheese. (Reveiw date: April 2008)
