AREA OF ORIGIN
Stellenbosch

PRODUCT BACKGROUND
Merlot was initially planted as a blending partner for Cabernet Sauvignon. The softer style was designed to round off the Cabernet Sauvignon. When the market indicated a liking for softer red wine, Merlot was included in our range as a stand-alone variety.

HARVEST DETAILS
In 2016, good, healthy fruit was picked at optimum ripeness – determined by aroma assessment (i.e. maximum fruit intensity).

CELLAR TREATMENT
The wine was fermented in rototanks between 20 ̊C and 25 ̊C with 30 % whole berries. Of the total 40 % was pre-soaked for 2 days.
