Maastricht Merlot 2020

R130.00

From the vineyard
The fertile Durbanville soil, quality of the dry-land Merlot
grape, as well as the high rainfall, warmer summer days and
cooler nights all contribute to the quality of Maastricht wines.

In the cellar
Hand-picked grapes at full phenolic ripeness were fermented
in open fermenters; punched through every 3 hours.
Malolactic fermentation took place in tank before the wine
was racked into 225L French Oak barrels. Minimum fining and
filtering were done before bottling

The winemakers notes
The nose shows hints of the spicy characteristics of the
variety, and is complemented by dark berry fruit flavours.
These flavours follow through on the palate, finishing with a
juicy and elegant mouthfeel. The nose shows hints of the spicy
