Description

Eikendal Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2019

Eikendal Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is like a velvet waistcoat: delightfully textured without being overly weighty.

Deep red colour. Expressive ripe blackcurrant and blackberry aromas with a dose of oaky vanilla. An earthy and cassis character with oaky and sweet vanilla spices to balance the fleshy fruit flavours. Full-bodied and concentrated with a lively acidity and fine-grained tannin backbone. Closes in a flattering spiced fruit finish.

50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot. The fruit comes from Eikendal vineyards 170 metres above sea level in Stellenbosch. The vineyards have “Koffieklip” (“Coffee Stone”) soils with a 1 metre deep clay layer and an east-west row direction.

After hand-picking and crushing the grapes, fermentation lasts for 1 week in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine matures for 12 months in French oak barriques.

Ageing potential: Great to drink now or over the next 4–5 years.
