Meridiana Nexus

The name ‘Nexus’ celebrates the marriage between Malta’s Old World geographical location and Meridiana’s New World vinicultural technology. The wine is aged for 10 months in French oak barrique (225 lt) and after bottling, it rests for a further 8 months in the bottle. The Nexus was first released in 1997 (vintage 1996).

Tasting Notes

Nexus has a clear, deep, purple-red colour; intense, ripe, cherry-plum aromas; and rich, well-structured, fruit flavours with soft tannins and a long finish.

The 2017 harvest was one of the most advanced (early ripening of grapes) in recent years, with the vintage being characterized by a very hot summer with practically no rains. The white grapes resisted the very warm temperatures without much problems expressing very good quality, while the relief irrigations favored the red grape varieties, resulting in an excellent phenolic ripeness.

Grape variety: Merlot of Malta.
