Journey's End Vineyards - Somerset West - Cape Town - Wine Farm

Merlot 2014

Ruby, clear and bright. Blackcurrants and raspberries, a hint of violets, with the French oak well balanced to allow the fruit to shine. It shows nutmeg, vanilla, and white pepper perfume, and finishes with just enough grip to promise good cellaring potential. An elegant, polished wine, already drinking well.

The grapes were hand-picked early in the morning from blocks 5 & 7. Block 7 is situated next to a Eucalyptus forest which has an subtle influence on the flavour profile of the wine.
