Fairview Stellenbosch Merlot

R100.00

Merlot is one of the world’s most popular grape varieties. Our grapes are grown in our Stellenbosch vineyards, where the cool Atlantic breeze and koffieklip soils, create a plush and plumy Merlot, finely oaked for a spicy edge.

Description

The grapes were harvested at 25 degrees balling, destalked and gently crushed into stainless steel tanks. Pump-overs were done up to three times a day. After fermentation the wine was racked into barrels for malolactic fermentation and matured for 16 months in French oak barrels of which 15% was new oak. A portion of the wine was hand-sorted, fermented in an open top wooden vat and basket pressed. This handcrafted portion of Merlot adds depth and complexity to the final blend.
