Matošević Mora Barrique
Istria and Primorje, Croatia
Merlot lovers should keep their eye on the Istrian merlots. And those who have not yet become merlot lovers, might change their minds when they try a few carefully produced Istrian wines. Primarily the soil, but also the climate in Istria are very favorable for this variety. Keep in mind that Mora is not an overripe merlot, which is proven by the fairly low alcohol content of 12.6% in comparison to other merlots. The harvest was done in due time to preserve the acids. It is important to make sure that the wine has a texture after it comes out of the barrels, and acids contribute to that texture. Mora is a slightly more interesting merlot and we definitely recommend you try it.
