Tasting Notes
Combine butter with a minty leafy herbal mouthfeel - more of an extrovert type of Merlot with soft berry flavours and a lingering palate, derived from some of the best red wine soils in SA imbedded deep in the heart of the Golden Triangle. The Merlot comes from the heart of the Helderberg and proves the intensity and value in the Golden Triangle red grapes. Deep berry flavours with lots of minty leafy character as well as a pronounced nose promoted by 18 months ageing on French oak.
