Tall Horse Merlot (The Purple One) is a delightful journey of lofty blackberry fruit fragrances and flavours, alluring spicy oak top-notes and supple tannins that linger with graceful intensity. Fermented on the skins for 7 days at 24 – 28°C with three aerations per day. After pressing, the young wine is matured on French oak staves for 3 months where malolactic fermentation is completed.
