Muratie Melck’s Blended Red

Just as the history of Muratie dates back centuries, so does the Melck family vintage. And over the years they have invested in their staff this sense of family.  Social upliftment has long been a cornerstone of Muratie’s culture. Thus everyone on the farm is steeped in knowledge of the growing and winemaking processes-working as one for the betterment of all, as all close families do.

Tasting Notes:

VINEYARD

The blend constitutes a selection of various vineyards on the wine estate.

VINIFICATION

The Melck’s Blended Red 2014 is a blend of Shiraz (47%), Merlot (36%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (17 %). The grapes are hand harvested and made in a combination of stainless steel tanks and open fermenters and is elegantly oaked.

WINEMAKER’S COMMENTS

Where most of the wines in the portfolio are special occasion wines, this medium-bodied blend is intended for everyday enjoyment. However, it too is sourced entirely from the estate, and while unpretentious it is well-crafted with its soft tannins, juicy black fruit and hints of warm spice and chocolate from careful wooding.

ANALYSIS

Alcohol 14.28 %
Residual Sugar 3.8 g/l
Total acid 5.5 g/l
pH 3.76
