Tall Horse Merlot 2013 has Great ruby intensity with liberal ripe plum and spice on the nose before a smooth lush entry with lashings of black cherry, mulberry, and plum fruit flavour well incorporated with deft oak notes. This wine’s grapes are left to ferment for seven days on their skins at 28 Degrees Celsius with three separate aerations per day. After the pressing process has been completed, the young wine goes through a process of malolactic fermentation on French oak staves, where they are left for an additional 3 months. Intrinsic cultivar traits are conserved by using a very light filtration process before the wine is bottled.
Tall Horse wines are for those who like to enjoy a good glass of quality vino, without all the nose-in-the-air-ness that seems to follow other wines around. We’re all for wines that are easier to drink than they are to pronounce. Tall Horse wines come from South Africa. The grapes grow in vineyards with near-perfect conditions in the Western Cape wine lands. From the slopes of the Cape Mountains caressed by cooling sea breezes, the vines drink in the winter rainfall and bask in the long summer sunshine hours allowing fantastic ripe expression of variety and land.
The Tall Horse Cabernet Merlot 2013 is an honest easy-drinking red wine that makes a fabulous social sipper ready to drink now or within a year or two of vintage. Don’t wait too long. Enjoy with roast lamb, grilled pork chops, or anything Italian.
