Generation 8 Merlot
Country: South Africa
Bottle size: 750 mL
Eyes: Vibrant purple heart with a ruby rim.
Nose: A true classic: medium-bodied with an appealing bouquet of ripe red cherries and mulberry fruit, following through with hints of earthiness and plums on the palate.
Mouth: A wine packed with red and dark fruit, with a lingering aftertaste.
Recommended food pairings: A good partner to a range of tomato-based dishes, roast chicken and creamy mushroom steak or stews.
Winemaker: Corlea Fourie
Growing conditions: We expected another early harvest as in 2016, but that didn’t happen. We waited and waited, grapes came in slowly and then the pace picked up furiously and it was all over within days: a great crop with good pH’s. Our 10th vintage!
Winemaking notes: The cooled grapes were hand sorted after de-stemming and then plenty of aerated pump overs during fermentation for maximum extraction. The wines went through malolactic fermentation in contact with new French oak.
