Cape Heights Merlot 2016



Tasting Note

Lush, ripe and deep in hue this is plump and sensuous Merlot with flavours of hedgerow fruits and a fine, gently leafy finish.

Producer Details

2015 is Boutinot's 24th vintage in South Africa. Thanks to long-standing relationships with growers, they have been able to consistently source the best parcels of fruit and successfully establish the Boutinot South Africa style and standard always developing and improving quality. This means working in the vineyards, selecting the best sites, overseeing the winemaking. Responsibility for this task now falls to their South African winemaker Marinda Kruger Van Eck and our range encompasses three different and very characterful styles - Cape Heights, Percheron & Mon Vieux. They are proud "affineurs of wines" in the Cape and dedicated to continuing to produce versatile, expressive, food-friendly wines from this fascinating region.

In The Vineyard

Grapes are sourced from long-established vineyards on the Wellington/Swartland borders, an area of low rainfall with mainly decomposed granite soils. The vines are low-trellised and the grapes were picked mid-March.

In The Winery

As they look for bright, juicy varietal fruit, the wine is VERY gently (10%) wooded.

Food Recommendations

Grilled lamb, pasta with a tomato-based sauce, chorizo and butterbean stew, spicy sausages.
