Plaisir De Merle Cabernet Sauvignon 1998

The wine has aromas of violets, sweet red berries and ripe berry fruit and a slight hint of wood. It has flavours of sweet succulent plums and chocolate and delicate wood tones. Firm tannins supported by a big structure will aid this wine to age well.

in the vineyard : The winter of 1997 was wet with moderate to cool temperatures resulting in a very good growing season. Although the summer of 1998 was warm and fairly dry, there was still enough water in the soil from the previous winter to offset the dry conditions.

about the harvest: The vines were in excellent condition to produce healthy grapes, which ripened early and were left to mature and develop a great concentration of flavours on the vine.
