SOFT, JUICY, AND EASYGOING RED WINE.
Fruity, juicy, and soft: that’s Merlot’s signature move. Big Idea is an ode to the supple grape that always keeps it mellow with silky tannins, nice acidity, and ripe flavors of plum, raspberry, and cedar. Hot summer days and cool nights give Merlot just what it needs to develop fruity notes and retain good acidity. It’s often blended with grapes with harsher tannins, creating a softening effect on the wine. But Big Idea shows you that Merlot can taste great all by itself, too.
SMALL COUNTRY, MAJOR WINE SCENE.
The local winemakers of North Macedonia have high standards. They’re full of passion for the rich tradition of winemaking that has survived 4,000 years here in the heart of the Balkan mountains. Their love of red wine predates even the Roman Empire, and these days, they’re focused on integrating this rooted tradition with modern technology. A glass of wine is best enjoyed with Turkish-inspired cuisines like turli tava and zelnik.
BIG IDEA GOES WITH BIG DISHES.
Merlot is a soft, fruity wine but it pairs with some of the richest meats and proteins you can think of. We love pairing it with beef stew, rack of lamb, baked ziti, and roasted potatoes.
