Rust En Vrede - Merlot 2012South African Red Wine
Aroma- Dark fruit and ripe plum aromas infused with subtle hints of tobacco.
Palate- Round, juicy mid-palate with a good balance of subtle and textured tannins make this a very approachable wine.
The grapes were harvested in February 2012. Primary fermentation took 7 days, followed by 14 days maceration.
Malolactic fermentation took place in barrels after which the wine was left to mature for 14 months in French oak before its release in June 2012.
