Tasting notes

This is Calvet’s leading brand of claret, with sumptuous full fruit from a classic combination of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. As well as possessing rich and intense berry fruit flavours, this has silky tannins and fragrant new vanilla oak. It's expertly made by a young winemaker in a modern style with definite Bordeaux character. Enjoy with a quintessential Sunday roast; it works with pork or chicken particularly well.

Roast with a modern twist with Calvet Reserve Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon

Roast pork with five-spice

Aromatic and spicy, the pork is slowly cooked to release all the flavours, while the delicate heat from the spices enhances the rich, vanilla notes of the wine. Serve with roast potatoes and root vegtables for a sublime Sunday lunch.
