Stellenbosch Hills Merlot
Stellenbosch Hills’ enchanting whiffs of violet and cherry blossom are the first impression. The wine is beautifully balanced and the velvety smooth palate rewards with luscious ripe plum and melting chocolate flavours on the lingering finish.
The perfect partner for roast beef, roast lamb or a beef stew.
The grapes were hand harvested at 24° balling – the optimal time of aromatic concentration.
In the Cellar:
Cold maceration takes place over 3 days at 15°C followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 26° to 28° balling until dry.
Only free run juice is used to make this wine. Wine was matured in French oak barrels.
Enjoy the wine now or within the next four to five years from harvest
