Hartenberg Loam Hill Merlot 2009

Hand-picked off a deep red, clay-loam soil. This single vineyard Merlot parcel represents the best of what we are able to do. The balance of the vineyard finds its way to our Bordeaux blend, The Mackenzie. The wine spent 20 months in 100% new, French oak barrels. Tasting Notes: Black red in colour with a dark core. Intense aromas of mocha, plums, spices and other red and black fruits. The palate shows rich and opulent fruit with supple sweet flavours. Tannins are fine and dry, allowing further ageing.

Winemaker: Carl Schultz
