Great example of cool-climate Merlot. The nose shows hints of the spicy characteristics of the variety, but is complemented by dark berry fruit flavours. The influence of French oak plays a supporting role and does not overpower the wine, allowing the fruit to shine through. These flavours follow through on the palate, finishing with a juicy and elegant mouthfeel, typical of the Durbanville area.

From the vineyard
The fertile Durbanville soil, quality of the dry-land Merlot grape, as well as the high rainfall, warmer summer days and cooler nights all contribute to the quality of Maastricht wines.

In the cellar
Hand-picked grapes at full phenolic ripeness were fermented in open fermenters; punched through every 3 hours. Malolactic fermentation took place in tank before the wine was racked into 225L French Oak barrels. Minimum fining and filtering was done before bottling.
