Tasting Notes

A down to earth, easy drinking red which is soft and smooth. Merlot based, the nose has a faint touch of white pepper and spice with abundant berry and rich plum flavours on the palate. A value for money wine that's perfect to share and everyone has a favourite Old Man in their life!

Blend Information

50% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon

In The Vineyard

This special blend is a selection of grapes from specific vineyard blocks on the farm that was managed to give this wine its specific style.

In The Cellar

During harvest the cultivars are kept apart and aged in third fill 300 litre French oak and in stainless steel tanks. After 12 months the different components are blended after rigorous tasting sessions with our Old Man, Peter Pentz.
