Remhoogte Aspect Merlot
R202.00 Inc VAT
Personally I’m not a big merlot drinker. I don’t enjoy the green flavors that come through in a lot of South Africa merlot’s.
These grapes have been planted on the steepest vineyards of Remhoogte which gives the grapes a longer slower ripening period also making them work harder in the shale that it grows in. All of this makes the grapes work harder which leads to the merlot not being to green in flavor.
The merlot is quite light in style and I found a pleasant herbaceous character to the wine with lavender and a little sage.
