Grapes are sourced from long-established vineyards on the Wellington/Swartland borders, an area of low rainfall with mainly decomposed granite soils. The vines are low-trellised and the grapes were picked mid-March. As we look for bright, juicy varietal fruit, the wine is VERY gently (10%) wooded.
Lush, ripe and deep in hue this is plump and sensuous Merlot with flavours of hedgerow fruits and a fine, gently leafy finish.
Grilled lamb, pasta with a tomato-based sauce, chorizo and butterbean stew, spicy sausages.
