Tall Horse Merlot 2020
2019-2020 was a great season with good rains, warm days and cool nights resulting in rich, ripe and juicy berries.
Tracked from vineyards ranging from warmer Southern slopes basking in long hours of sunlight to cooler pockets of vines where African Ocean breezes ensure ultimate expression of cultivar and land. Hand harvested in February and March at an average of 24°B.
Great ruby intensity with liberal ripe plum and spice on the nose before a smooth lush entry with lashings of black cherry, mulberry and plum fruit flavour well incorporated with deft oak notes.
An honest easy-drinking red wine that makes a fabulous social sipper ready to drink now or within a year or two of vintage. Don’t wait too long. Enjoy with roast lamb, grilled pork chops or anything Italian.
