2020 Merlot / Cabernet Sauvignon

Otto…make you smile

50% Merlot
50% Cabernet Sauvignon

Western Cape, South Africa

13 & 27-year-old Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, respectively, situated on the south and west-facing slopes between 170 and 190m above sea level consisting of decomposed granite and loam soils.

Winemakers Notes:
This 50/50 blend of two noble wines, beautifully crafted in new world style. This fruit-driven wine boasts glorious dark currant, berry and sweet cassis flavours with hints of spice, dark mocha and subtle cigar box finish. Complimenting firm, ripe tannins and an integrated acid, give this wine superb structure and ageing potential. If cellared correctly, this wine will continue to mature for another 5+ years.

Great with Pizza and complement to many braai (barbecue) dishes.

Wine Spectator (November 2013) 84 Points.

Alc. 14.3, pH 3.55, RS 3.6 g/l, TA 5.2g/l
