Groot Constantia Merlot 2017

Grapes for the Groot Constantia Merlot are sourced from vineyards located on the steep valley on the eastern side of Table Mountain. Following fermentation the wine was matured for 18 months in French oak (61% new), 10% was second passage and 29% was third passage barrels. The result is a rich and ripe Merlot delivering aromas of sun ripened plum, mocha and dark chocolate enveloped in delicate hints of oak spice, tobacco and cinnamon. The palate of ripe black fruits and subtle oak is framed by firm tannins through to a lingering finish.
