TASTING NOTES

Tim Atkin's Rating: 94 points (2013); 98 points (2015); 96 points (2016)
Platter's Rating: 4.5 stars (2016)

Shannon Black is hailed as the best Merlot from South Africa that compares with the best world examples. With aromas and flavours of plums and dark cherries, it has earthy complexity and minerality. It has great acidity lending freshness to the wine, and a ripe and elegant tannin structure. Under optimal cellar conditions, this wine will drink well into 2035.

The grapes for the Black Merlot are picked from a small 3 hectare vineyard. The vineyard is divided up into 5 different parcels, each with its own respective clone. Considerable emphasis is placed on capturing the clone expressions and therefore the parcel is vinified and matured separately.
