Botannica - Big Flower Merlot, Stellenbosch, South Africa (2016)
A thoroughly delicious merlot sporting dense, chewy tannins with a surprisingly light and fresh core with pretty floral notes. This wine has a lot of ripe plum flavours with elegance and graceful charm.
Grown predominantly on decomposed granite, with pockets of shale and sandstone, 200m above sea level. The grapes were destemmed, crushed and fermented in open top fermentation tanks, with punch downs performed twice daily. Racked into old French oak barrels for 12 months aging.
