We can do Merlot in style! Our very sought after Quarry Merlot has, once again, made it’s much anticipated appearance in our Cellardoor. Our Merlot has long made a name for itself as being an elegant, medium bodied, fruity and oh so quaffable wine, and the 2015 Quarry definitely does not fall short of its predecessors.
At a mere 10 barrel production, this Merlot is a great drinking wine and due to its “bigger” nature is an absolute dream to pair with. It can be enjoyed with any rich cheese or a premium cut, AAA grade, well aged steak! The distinct minerality of our soil helps the Merlot remain fresh on the palate with an elegant and lengthy finish.
Complex in its nature, this Merlot offers a bit of vanilla spice on the back palate to create a very well rounded wine! 18 months aged in 1st and 2nd fill barrels helps the wine maintain its age ability of about 5 to 7 years and softens the tannins just enough to give for an easy drinking style.
At a steal of only R175.00 a bottle! It is for sale in our tasting room or to purchase online for your convenience. Our tasting room is open 7 days a week where tastings start at R30.00 per person. We have an array of tastings, tasting platters and pairings available so call 021 970 5800 or email Cellardoor@hillcrestfarm.co.za for more information!
