Where and what to eat and drink in Malta

Nexus Merlot 2005, Meridiana Wines

Wine type: Full bodied
Country and Region: Malta
Colour: Red
Category: Something special
Appearance: Ruby red and fairly high viscosity. Young looking with a short rim. Nose: Quite shy at first and then opens up with ripe berry aromas of wild strawberries and raspberries. There is a slight evidence of contact with oak by hints of vanilla. Palate: The wine fills the mouth with a lovely fruitiness. Soft tannins gives it a lift and it is full bodied and well balanced. The aftertaste is pleasant and lingers.
Conclusion: An excellent Maltese wine to be served with any red meat dishes or flavourful vegetarian. The full bodyness and the fruitiness could even be a great match for a mild to medium hot Indian meal. (Reviewed March 2008)
