Longridge - Merlot 2014
The Merlot block is on decomposed granite soil. Since the macro climate is maritime, with cold wet winters and sunny warm summers, the Helderberg region is the coolest in the Stellenbosch region. This Merlot was aged in French oak barrels for 26 months. Organic and biodynamic practices are employed by not using any pesticides or chemical spray.
Ripe, yet soft tannins compliment the aromas of dark, red fruit, and ripe plums
