Flat Roof Manor Merlot Case - 6 x 750ml

The flat roof manor screwcap range derives it's name from the 18th century townhouse at the winery, where winemaker Estelle Lourens is based. One of just three two-storied neoclassical houses in this style at the cape, it is thought to have been designed by the eminent architect Michel Thibault. It was completed in 1788. The label depicts the detailing of the flat-topped roof and features a cat that, according to local legend, stayed long after the original owners had moved on, to lap up the sun on the parapet. Uitkyk Estate comprises 600ha with 160ha under vines. Cultivars planted on the estate include Chardonnay, Semillon, Chenin Blanc, Viognier, Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Pinotage, sangiovese, Mourvedre, Petit Verdot and Pinot Noir.

Grapes were sourced from three different vineyards in the acclaimed Stellenbosch region, situated some 250m to 300m above sea level. Trellised on a four-wire system, the vines received supplementary irrigation towards the end of january 2010 and yielded 5 to 8 tons per hector.

Wine Making:
The grapes were harvested by hand at 24.5 to 25.5 degrees celsius balling in the first week of March 2010. Fermentation took place in a combination of rotation tanks and open fermenters at 26 degrees celsius to 28 degrees celsius until dry, using pure yeast cultures, and was completed in five to eight days. After a two-week period of maceration on the skins, the wine was transferred to stainless steel tanks to complete malolactic fermentation. Thereafter the wine was transferred to 300 litre barrels (4% new, the rest older barrels of which 90% French Oak) to mature for 10 months. Bottling took place in January 2011.
