Great Expectations Crane Merlot

Great Expectations Crane Merlot

£10.25

Fruity and accessible, this wine is medium in colour and medium to full-bodied. It has a little Petit Verdot added to the wine to lift it slightly and provide an accent of perfumed floral notes. Otherwise, you should expect flavours jumping out at you of fresh red and black fruit, spices, smokiness, wood burning stoves and earth. Fine tannins have been softened from some time in oak barrels, it is dry in the mouth and moreish.

    About the Producer
    Great Expectations Goedverwacht Estate is family-owned and run vineyard, beautifully situated on the banks of the Breede River in Robertson. The farm has been owned by the Du Toit family for three generations dating back to the 1950’s.

    180 hectares under vine spans a diverse range of terroirs, soil types and micro-climates. The best sites and vineyards have been identified through the years for each varietal, enabling them to produce wines of distinctive character with an inherent fruit purity and elegance. Their Great Expectations wines perfectly encapsulate the natural elements around the vines and the philosophy in crafting them.

    Sustainability scope: Meticulous attention to detail in the vineyards and sustainable farming practices, combined with a minimalistic hands-off approach in the cellar to yield wines which are expressive and pure.
