Grapes for the Saxenburg Private Collection Merlot 2006 were harvested from vines that were trellised, no irrigation or fertilizer ‘vendage verte’ for low production at optimum ripeness. Selected from the best part of the vineyard, fermented with yeast in open tanks at 29°C plus 2 weeks of skin contact after the fermentation. Bottled at 14.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: A very attractive nose of ripe, slightly jammy, berries, pencil shavings and worn leather.

Palate: The palate has a sense of freshness to it, with a great line of acidity beautifully balanced by the sweet taste of molasses. The tannins are still very much present and add further interest to the palate.

Finish: Savoury with lingering hints of allspice.
