CAPE OF GOOD HOPE PAREL VALLEI MERLOT 2018

Aromas reminiscent of Christmas pudding – spice, dark plum, cherry and berry fruit. Hint of mint too. That lively spice and plum pudding interplay continues in the mouth. The palate is compact and cohesive rather than big, bold and full bodied. The oak counters the ripe fruit, providing backbone and staying power with an impressively long, dry finish.

This wine presents with bold, almost audacious spiciness coupled with blueberry and plum compote aromatics. The palate is similarly expressive and appealing with its vibrant spiciness. The same ripe, rich and plush plum and blueberry fruit flavours are also immediately apparent on the palate. This wine’s texture is pliable, supple and approachable but with good underpinning of well-knit oak that frames the

Inky intrigue to a somewhat subdued nose of shy black plum and spice – with a hint of fynbos in the backdrop. Plush entry to the mouth, rounded and appealing with ample juicy black plum notes. Those rich flavours are tempered by a pleasant spicy cedar grip. Structured, textured, but still taut and leashed, the wine is like the 2019, still somewhat tightly furled. It finishes with good length and an intriguing saline element.

Complex bouquet of fruitcake, cedar, cocoa and a perfumed whiff of dried lavender. Broad, fleshy and succulent with all of that the nose promises being delivered on the palate. Spice sprinkled cedar with rich dark fruitcake flavour. Wonderfully soft, rounded and silky palate that shows cohesion and refinement. Impressive density and concentration that doesn’t overwhelm. Nor does the oak used in the maturation of this impressive blend. Plush, comfortable and eminently rewarding with a lingering dry tail.

Gentle spice nuance to ripe black cherry and blackcurrant aromas. Fresh, juicy and soft entry to the palate with the lovely ripe black fruits hinted at on the nose being apparent on the tongue. Again the spice highlights add interest, as does the light, dry tannin element.
