Hill & Dale - Merlot - Case 6 x 750ml
Stellenzicht's hillandale label offers a range of accessibly styled wines with a new world character for international appeal, created by award-winning winemaker Guy Webber. Grapes for the hillandale wines are selected from vineyards within the Stellenbosch region. Extensive vineyard management programmes are in place for each of the vineyards from which the fruit is selected. All aspects of the process are strictly governed so as to comply with not only the standards set for the integrated production of wine (IPW) system, but also with the quality standards set for HACCP and the BRC (British Retail Consortium). The name for the range was derived from Stellenzicht's hillandale farm, located just outside the town of Stellenbosch. The logo on the label depicts an Oak tree leaf, synonymous with the historic university town. Vineyards: The vineyards, planted between 1987 and 1993, are situated on gentle slopes facing north-east. They grow from 160m to 230m above sea level in marginal soils of decomposed granite and table mountain sandstone. The vines are all grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstocks and trellised on five-wire fence systems. Supplementary irrigation was given as needed. The vineyards yielded an average of 6.5 tons per hector in a vintage characterised by conditions both cooler and wetter than the average. Wine making The grapes were harvested from 25 February to 12 march 2013 at around 22,7 degrees Celsius balling. After destalking and crushing, the mash was fermented in stainless steel tanks at between 22 and 24 degrees celsius before being transferred to a combination of Oak barrels and vats where the wine matured for 15 months. During final blending, a touch of Cabernet franc was added to give the wine an extra dimension and add to it's complexity. It was bottled on 8 September 2014 with the total production being 6 770 cases. 

What's in the box:
x 6 Hill & Dale - Merlot

- Colour: Deep and vibrant ruby
- Bouquet: Meaty blend of ripe red fruit, fresh oregano and cinnamon. Very little Oaking is evident
- Taste: Medium-bodied and well-balanced with classic austerity. Faint aniseed nuances between red berry fruitiness
- Ageing potential: Imminently drinkable in it's youth, the wine should gain in complexity to an age of three to five years
- Food Pairing: Wonderful on it's own but also pairs well with simple dishes like sausage and mash, salt beef with whole-grain mustard, pepperoni pizza and boerewors with pap and chakalaka
