Groote Post Merlot 2003

Groote Post Merlot 2003

NOT AVAILABLE FOR TASTING AT CELLAR DOOR

The bounty of our merlot vineyards is almost endless. In this wine the intensely concentrated, super-ripe fruit gives an almost syrupy consistency on the palate. One could easily be tempted to drink it upon release, but cellaring for a few years will leave the various elements - fruit, acid, oak and tannin-harmoniously integrated.
