Merlot Blend, Circle Of Life Red, Stellenbosch 2012
A hugely compelling wine. Deeply refined single estate expression showing bounds of character, finesse, length, breadth and structure - it really does have it all! The plan is obviously coming together, as this vintage is the most successful expression of their originally planned vineyard blend and is a testament to biodynamic viticulture.
A classically styled wine with notes of cassis and cedar. The seamless, elegant palate is encased by fine tannins. It is a wine that will increase in complexity with age.
