Fish Hoek Fairtrade Merlot 2020

This warm rich ruby red wine shows great complexity on the nose with bright red fruit. There is a mixture of dark red fruit and spicy undertones with well balanced structure which compliments the palate.

Fish Hoek is a little settlement just outside of Cape Town on the False Bay coast. It is blessed with a breath taking beach, where the waves break for the first time in their previously unhindered journey from the Antarctic. Backed by Table Mountain, the locals enjoy the outdoors as a way of life - it is this spirit that we hope to capture in this wine.

in the cellar : The grapes are from the vineyards of the Breedekloof region. The grapes were harvested at an average of 25°B, de-stemmed and crushed to stainless steel fermenters where it had 2 days of skin contact before it was fermented. Fermentation took place between 25-27 °C on the skins till dry with soft pump-overs every 4 hours. After alcoholic and malolactic fermentation a combination of American and French oak staves were used to give this wine its unique characteristics.
