Tall Horse Merlot (The Blue One) is a deliciously sleek medium-bodied Merlot with a streak of lithe juicy cherry and plum fruit and a dash of well-integrated oak.
Fermented on the skins for 7 days at 24 – 28°C with three aerations to unleash inherent colours and flavours. Once dry, the young wine is pressed and placed on French oak before malolactic fermentation and left for a further 3 months for best integration.
