Aromas of raspberry and red plum combined with succulent fruit flavours and finely coated tannins ensure a pleasurable drinking experience.

In the Vineyard: Sun worshiping, open armed lyre trellised vines, ensure maximum fruit ripeness. Oak leaf and weathered granite soils ensure these vines are planted in soils rich in organic matter.
In the Cellar: A fermentation of 5-6 days with no maturation in oak creates a very fruit-forward Merlot. Pasteurized and prepared under supervision of the Cape Town Beth Din. This wine is Mevushal and Kosher for Passover.
