Natalie's Score: 89/100
Lovely savoury and cedar notes in this full-bodied red. Black fruit and an attractive smoky character with earthy aromas. Decant 1-2 hours before serving.
Merlot food pairings: lamb and vegetable ratatouille.

|Carla rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Recently visited the winery. What a great selection of beautiful wines. For a merlot, I found this wine on the lighter end, but it still maintained a wide range of flavour. It was a nice surprise.
"A richly textured red wine with pepper, spice and soft smokey notes. Velvety tannins give it a soft, lingering finish." (Reif tasting notes)
|The juice underwent fermentation on its skins for 12 days, using selected yeast. Oak barrel fermentation and aging in French and American barriques for 12 months adds complexity to this rich red wine. This wine also underwent complete malolactic fermentation.|
