For this vintage we made just 3 barrels of our vintage port style wine from our Estate Merlot. The brandy used to fortify the wine is custom made for us, and helps create the delicious rich fruit character, dominated by black cherry. A mildly sweet after dinner wine, this wine will develop rich port-like characteristics with further cellaring.
75 Cases Produced 19.5% Alc. 375ml bottle, and a small number of 750ml bottles.
“This is a port-style fortified Merlot barrel-aged for 21 months. Total production is just 75 cases. The wine is dark in colour. The aroma explodes with sweet cherry and black licorice. It delivers delicious flavours of sweet berries mingled with spice and chocolate. It has the appealing freshness of late-bottled vintage port. 92.” John Schreiner June 2021 – johnschreiner.blogspot.com
