Tall Horse Merlot - Olivin

Tall Horse Merlot

Vegan/Vegetarian: Vegan

Size: 75cl

Origin: South Africa

ABV%: 13.5%

Seal: Screw Cap

Tasting Notes:
Good ruby colour intensity with generous ripe plum and spice on the nose. A silky smooth lush entry with pleasing soft ripe fruit flavours and well incorporated oak notes.

Grapes were tracked from a variety of macroclimates ranging from warmer Southern slopes, basking in long hours of sunlight to cooler pockets of vines where African Ocean breezes ensure ultimate expression of cultivar and land. Our Cape climate allows the vines to drink in the winter rainfall and ripen slowly in the warm summer season before harvest- ing in February at an average of 24˚C.

Fermented on the skins for 7 days with three aerations to unleash inherent colours and flavours. Once dry, pressing took place and the young wine was placed onto French oak staves before malolactic fermentation. A further 3 months on the wood captures thorough integration and complexity.

For your drinking pleasure:
An honest red wine that is ready to drink now or within a year or two. Don’t wait too long. Enjoy slightly chilled with roast lamb or grilled pork chops. Also great with tomato based Italian food, pizza or full-flavoured hard cheese. A good social sipping red at cocktail parties or barbeques
