Meerlust Merlot 1994
All the vineyards were green harvested during veraison to reduce yield and increase concentration and fruit definition.
Extensive canopy management, leaf removal and bunch selection were practised to ensure a uniformly ripe and healthy crop.
Winemaking and Maturation
A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine has a very intense, dark plum colour. Its nose exhibits themes of black and red berry fruits, combined with rich spiciness and cedar wood perfumes.
The palate is mouth-filling, supple and succulent with robust tannins and fresh acidity. Nice warm finish. A very elegant and balanced wine that will age beautifully. Serve with red meats, game and strong cheeses.
