Tasting Notes:

Tempting black cherry and mulberry aroma with a gentle brush of sweet spices and a faint floral hint. Soft and rounded entry with more of that black cherry and blue berry fruit appeal apparent in the mouth. A deeper, underlying cocoa note adds depth, interest and density to the palate. Lovely gentle texture, with supple pliability, which makes it so each to drink. Structured with a long, rewarding aftertaste.

These grapes are mostly selected from the Groenekloof ward in the Darling area. The area is unique because of its warm days and cool nights. This, together with the deep red soil, is beautifully expressed in the wine as a mix between dark and red fruit flavours with good concentration and a soft juicy tannin structure. 

Maturation took place in 225ℓ 2nd - and 3rd fill French oak barrels for about 12 months.

The Merlot grapes were harvested by hand at 24.8˚Balling. After de-stemming and crushing, the wine was transferred into 10 000ℓ French oak tanks and 10 000ℓ stainless steel tanks. Fermentation on the skins takes place at 26˚C for 15 days. The wine was drained from the skins and the skins were pressed. The free run and press juice were aged separately and blended after 8 months.
