Tasting Notes:

This Private Collection Merlot shows clean berry aromas with mulberry very prominent, and subtle hints of oak and mocha present. The taste is no different to the aroma, and nice berry flavours all around on the palate, with a creamy finish to a well-balanced wine. Fresh on the after taste with velvety tannins.

Between two mighty oceans, on the southern tip of Africa, lies the historic Saxenburg Wine Farm. Here, memory and the seasons conspire with the cellarmaster’s craft to produce unique wines of consistent and exceptional quality. For centuries wayfarers bound for the East Indies found hospitality and relief at the Fairest Cape. At Saxenburg we extend this tradition and invite you to visit our world.

Trellised, no irrigation or fertilizer ‘vendage verte’ for low production at optimum ripeness.

12 months in 300 litre French oak barrels of which 30 % was new, 40% second fill and 30% third fill

Selected from best part of the vineyard, fermented with yeast in open tanks at 28°C plus 2 weeks of skin contact after the fermentation.

Food pairing

The wine is an ideal accompaniment to rich, full flavoured meat dishes.
