Cape Winemakers Guild

Hartenberg CWG Amphora Merlot 2020

100% Merlot

This wine spent 18 months in a hand-made, 400 litre imported Italian clay Amphora. A Merlot selected from our very best site for the varietal. The grapes were hand-sorted, fermented and macerated on the skins for 15 days with Italian yeast.

Tasting Notes: Ripe cranberry, cherries, gentle vanilla aromatics, underpinned by cigar box and spice. Silky smooth palate entry evolves to a rich, yet fresh, elegant mid-palate, loads of red and black fruit on finish.

Ready for drinking in 2024 and until 2039.

Winemaker: Carl Schultz
