Mountain Range Malbec & Merlot 2021

R 135.00

Tasting Notes

Aromas of sweet spice, black cherries, and plum with subtle hints of cedar and rustic leather. The palate pleases with soft, juicy tannins which are well balanced to offer all-round balance and finesse with a lingering finish.

Winemaker's Notes

The Malbec grapes are sourced from a Groenberg vineyard facing southwest and ripen early in the season. The Merlot grapes are grown on Doolhof from one of the first vineyards established on the farm.

All the grapes are hand harvested and undergo bunch sorting before being crushed into stainless steel tanks for fermentation between 24-27 degrees. Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally after which the wines are aged in older French oak barrels for 12 months. Bottled November 2022. Drink now and up to 2026.

Serving Suggestion

Salt and Pepper South African braai Lamb chops with rosemary and subtly splashes garlic butter.
