Cherrychoc Merlot

The Story

Instead of providing lengthy descriptions about a multifaceted wine, we decided to simply capture its essence and highlight a prominent characteristic in the name, Cherrychoc. So we created this bold Merlot with a smooth finish with a clear-cut, simple and identifiable label.

Viticulture and Winemaking

Vines are nestled in broken shale rocks on a south-facing slope. The small berries are filled with intense flavours of cherries and mulberries when they enter the cellar. Gentle pressing ensures that we get the best juice and we still make use of the punch down method for colour extraction, while the wine ferments in open fermentation tanks.

Tasting Notes

The colour is deep red. On the nose you get prominent notes of ripe cherries and chocolate. The mid-palate is chunky with intense flavours of cherries, plums, bitter espresso and a pleasant, dry finish of black pepper and dark chocolate.

    This is the most amazing wine ever. Smooth on the palate, no furry after taste, just a smooth red wine.

    Lovely. Sharon

    Surprise! I normally don’t go for the choc flavour wines, so thought it would be a hit or miss with this one. Wow, a lovely smooth Merlot. Fruity on the nose and the choccie undertones on the palate. Very nice! How did you guys make this? Perhaps a visit to your estate for the answers.

    Hi Kerstin and Uwe.

    I’m afraid we are not distributing in Germany at the moment.
    How about another trip to South Africa?
