Bottle Information 

2017 Vinatge

14% ABV 

Vineyard: Vines are planted on a Duplex soil with some clay– Kroonstad , with a south/south-west aspect . Yields are 8 tons per hectare.

Vinification: Hand harvested in individual parcels and selected for quality to get the ripest possible, balanced Merlot from our very finest soils, influenced by the cool S/E wind during the ripening season. The wine was matured in selected French oak barrels for 12 months and blended with a small fraction of Cabernet Franc for structure and complexity prior to bottling.
