Glen Carlou Collection Merlot 2018 Limited Edition
This 2018 Merlot is one of only 2180 bottles made. A truly illustrative example of this noble grape. Produced from fruit hand-harvested in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
The grapes for this wine were carefully hand-sorted, to retain the best of the berries which were then fermented naturally in 400 litre open top new French Oak barrels. The attention to detail throughout the winemaking process is tasted on the wine. It was handled sensibly and sensitively with frequent and soft punch downs and gravity-led transfers. Before being bottled and labelled the wine was matured in all new French 225 litre barriques for 14 months.
