Ormonde Private Cellar is situated on the West Coast of South Africa, where the rugged Darling hills roll and fall along the contours of a ancient granite intrusion. These molten rocks, forced from the earth to 300m above sea level, guard the Atlantic Ocean while banks of fog roll to the foot of the hills, blessing the vineyard with coolness and moisture.
Merlot vines are very generous when bearing fruit and we are always careful not to over crop. This will lead to dilution and loss of colour intensity.
STYLE: Fruity Dry Red Wine
