R95.00 / 750ml

Rich fruit flavours and a velvety texture summarises the Waterlily Merlot. The wine has aromas of spice and red fruit along with a hint of chocolate, blackberry and plum. It can be enjoyed by itself or paired with your favourite Italian inspired dishes.

Vinification

Grapes are hand harvested from 18 year old vines on the Southern slope of the Kanonberg mountains. The grapes are destemmed, crushed and cold soaked in stainless steel tanks for 48 hours and then innoculated with selected yeast strains to begin fermentation. The wine undergoes pump overs 3 times a day, as well as post fermentation maceration for 20 days, before being transferred to 20% new, 40% second fill and 40% third fill French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and maturation for 18 months, until bottled.
