Boschendal 1685 Merlot 2017
On the nose: Rich red cherry, blueberry and plum notes with
a hint of dark chocolate. Good fruit intensity.
Palate: Rich red cherry plum and pronounced ripe mulberry
flavours. An elegant cool-climate style of wine with intensity
of fruit and length. Good natural balance between primary
fruit aromas, colour and structure extraction, rounded and
integrated by subtle oak aging from larger 300-litre barrels.
Ageing potential: The multi-layered complexity of this wine
will develop over the following three to seven years.
