We are proud to announce that Cronier Wines has again been awarded at the Gold Wine Awards in 2018.

1698: Merlot 2017

Hints of rich oak and soft spices backed by notes of plum and cherry.

VITICULTURE:

The grapes for this wine came from 8 year old Merlot blocks planted in rich well drained Swartland/Glenrosa soil types.

WINEMAKING:

The grapes are harvested at optimum ripeness to ensure good fruit, a dark red colour and good structure. The grapes are destemmed and crushed at the cellar and after directly pumped into stainless steel tanks. Cold maceration is applied for two days before fermentation to extract as much colour and flavour as possible. After fermentation is started, the wine on the skins is left to ferment at temperatures between 23 – 26 degree Celsius. During fermentation the skins and must is continually mixed for optimum flavour and colour extraction as well as even fermentation.

The wine was matured for 12 months in second and third filled French oak Barrels.

TASTING:

Hints of rich oak and soft spices backed by notes of plum and cherry. This rich and concentrated wine will age gracefully.
