Low yielding Merlot vines planted in old shale soils in the Keisie valley. These are some of the oldest soils of South Africa forming part of the Bokkeveld Shale group. Some of South Africa?s oldest fossils where found alongside the banks of the Keisie River in 1805
Beautiful dark cherry red color. Initial notes of fresh plums, cedar wood and pomegranate as the wine opens up to a bouquet of ripe berries and red fruits with hints of white pepper. Soft elegant flavors fill the palette. Fresh dark fruit dominates the taste, plums, cherries, nothing jammy or overly ripe. The wine is balanced and poised with smooth tannins, fruity sweetness and lingering taste.
