Hartenberg Loam Hill Merlot 2005

A Merlot selected from our very best of the varietal and select parcels of the supporting acts. The grapes were hand sorted, fermented and macerated on the skins for 15 days, with Italian yeast and given 100% MLF in small French oak. After 20 months in the new wood and three rackings a year, the wine was lightly filtered and bottled on 29 November 2006. Tasting Notes Dark black-red in colour. The bouquet has a complex mix of ripe plums, violets, cherries and aromas of coffee, vanilla and choc from the wood. On the palate the wine is silky, has bags of black fruit, sweet, ripe fine dry tannins and a lingering edgy finish.
