Winemaker Notes

57% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and 11% Petit Verdot
The grapes were handpicked and fermented separately before undergoing malolactic fermentation in new and seasoned oak, before selection, blending and bottling. The 2014 Meerlust Red was barrel aged in 55% new Nevers and 45% second-fill casks.
The wine has an intense, dark purple colour with a violet rim; bright and vivacious in the glass, youthful. The nose is expressive with powerful cassis, plum, exotic spice and hints of floral aromas. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied with intense flavours of crushed black fruit, cassis, vanilla and dark chocolate. The tannins are soft and silky, the acidity fresh, the flavour profile focused and linear. The wine has a persistent and long-lasting aftertaste.
