79% Merlot, 17% Shiraz, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon with half barrel matured and the balance in tank. Merlot, the backbone of the blend, is from vines planted in 2003. Elevation from 100m-150m. Soil types fall mainly under the heavier Klapmuts, over decomposed granite. Clay lies 1m-1.2m down.
Lighter on the palate yet plush red fruit give roundness and warmth. Serve slightly chilled.
Enjoy with steak frites, gourmet hamburgers and roast chicken
Third Party Reviews
This new wine, a blend of Merlot (79%) with Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon offers awesome value. Fragrant crushed black cherries and cassis, vanilla, baking spices and mocha aromas roll into a supple palate with generous fruit. It is plush, approachable and international in style, but the fruit and soft tannins will appeal to fruity red wine lovers. Score 89, www.winescores.com, Sept 2019
