More Information - Zorgvliet Merlot

The Merlot on Zorgvliet grows in shallow duplex soils that contains a dense layer of clay in the subsoil. This leads to concentration and causes this wine to often be mistaken for its heavier brother – Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose reminds of black cherry, plum and sandalwood, with a hint of boegoe. The entry in the mouth is smooth with good dark chocolate focus on the mid palate and a somewhat dryish finish. There is a tight midpalate focus. The wine is full bodied and rich and will reward some aging

At dusk the valley becomes tranquil and filled with magic, the mountains are painted in the colors of our rainbow nation as the last rays of sunshine greet the valley good night.
