In The Vineyard
Merlot by nature is very sensitive to heat and prefers cooler areas therefore we plant our Merlot on the lower mountain slopes in deep karoo soils that retain water well. Our Merlot vines are planted mainly south east - north west to protect the grapes from direct sunlight and to utilize the prevailing south eastern breeze to cool the grapes during the ripening season.
