The Merlot grapes are sourced from vineyards located on Table Mountain Sandstone; planted with a range of Merlot clones. After a traditional fermentation the wine is racked and left to complete its malolactic fermentation and maturation in four to five year old French oak barriques for nine months. The wine has a fragrance of ripe red fruits such as plum and dark cherry and an earthy complexity; the palate shows a minerally freshness with a well-integrated ripe tannins.
