Notes

'The Series M 2015 is being eased into the market and it’s sure to please its many fans. A blend of 40% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon and 29% Malbec, the nose shows black and blue fruit, incense, cocoa powder plus a touch of black olive and earth. The palate is rich and smooth textured – these wines are always about fruit power and this is again extraordinarily dense and deep although it somehow doesn’t sacrifice all balance and refreshment value. A wine of great technical acumen, it would be churlish not to like it.' Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za 92/100

Tasting notes:
Vivid dark red fruit leads this Merlot/Malbec blend of Series M. The aromas are immediate, fresh, bright pure and expressive, including freshly picked dark cherries and black raspberries. Undertones of citrus flowers, lightly perfumed are present. On the palate, the brightness of the wine expresses with a flavor display of the fresh Spring fruits, with refined texture. The finish is firm and long, a balance of fruit and fine tannins, an underlying structure that does not assert itself but gives the wine weight and longevity.

Series M is matured for twenty months in French oak barrels and another year in bottle before release. The 2015 is a blend of 40% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Malbec, classic yet plush with deep seductive fruit and weight.
