A perfect example of a 'cool-climate' Merlot. Hints of typical merlot spices, complemented by the scent of black currants. The influence of French oak plays a supporting role in the taste, but it does not dominate. The fruit flavors are also clearly reflected in the taste. The finish is juicy and elegant, typical of the Durbanville area. A good solid wine.

 

For this wine, the grapes are harvested by hand when they have reached full phenolic maturity. The grapes are fermented in open fermenters, battonage is applied every 3 hours. The malolactic fermentation takes place in the tanks, before maturing the wine for 8 months in 225 liter oak barrels. Before bottling, the wine is only clarified and filtered to a limited extent.
