Noble Hill Merlot
A rebel with a cause: you'll see why Noble Hill Merlot is James Dean as Jim Stark, cavorting with Cabs while other Merlots dabble in “easy-drinking fruitiness.” Black cherry, dark plum, and a full mouth-feel.
Noble Hill strives for balance between deep, luscious flavours and elegant freshness. Fermented on the skins, the wine is gently pressed and left to 225 litre French oak barriques for 18 months. It is racked twice during this period, and ultimately bottled with minimal intervention.
The result is a deep, clear colour with an intense aroma of fruitful ripe plum and a hint of tobacco leaf. The palate is focused with lingering black fruit and robust tannins. Noble Hill Merlot pairs wonderfully with game meats such as pigeon, springbok, or kudu. Enjoy confidently through 2025.
