From the Pella Varlatenkloof Merlot emanate seductive aromas of ripe raspberries and black currant. On the palate, the tannins are firm and yet wonderfully ripe, in perfect harmony with the dazzling flavours of delicious black summer cherries and ripe plums. The finish is smooth and soft and the aftertaste pampers with a long finish.

The grape material for this highly endowed Merlot comes from old and woody bush vines from a once forgotten small valley. Now brought back to life as an absolute secret tip, these vines produce highly concentrated and complex grapes. The name "Verlatenkloof" means "abandoned pass" or "deserted valley" as a reminder of the once forgotten and yet so fertile terroir.

Treatment in the cellar

The grapes for this award-winning Merlot were hand-picked and upon arrival at the winery they were sorted and completely destemmed with a great deal of know-how and care. After a ten-day cold swelling phase at a controlled 8°C, the fermentation process took place at a maximum temperature of 25°C. After the fermentation process was completed, the wine was pressed in the traditional and manually operated basket press, whereupon it was allowed to mature for 12 months in French barriques.
