Muratie Alberta Annemarie Merlot 2019

Product information "Muratie Alberta Annemarie Merlot 2019"
The Muratie Alberta Annemarie Merlot shimmers in a rich red colour in the glass and immediately seduces the connoisseur's senses with its wonderful layers of aromas of ripe plums, cocoa, cinnamon and roasted hazelnuts. Year after year, these become more and more prominent in the wine, which is matured for twelve months in French oak. Its rich character is perfectly balanced by a fresh acidity and a pinch of herbs. The name of the Merlot is reminiscent of one of the estate's first owners. Alberta Annemarie went horse riding with her father and found the Muratie vineyard by chance. Both were so enthusiastic that her father bought it immediately and left it to his daughter after his death. Over the years, Alberta Annemarie became increasingly wiser and stronger in character, just like this wine. Although it is made for immediate consumption, it can also be stored for a few years and then enjoyed on its own or with savoury dishes with pasta or dark meat.

Muratie Wine for the Gourmet

Muratie in South Africa produces premium wine for gourmets. Wine novices as well as connoisseurs find the right red or white wine in a variety of ranges. All Muratie wines have in common a particular, individual character and offer an excellent price-quality ratio.

The Muratie Vineyard

The vineyard Muratie attaches great importance to careful handling of the vines at the wine slope. The yard is a member of the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative and does not use herbicides. Only geese, ducks and turkeys are used for pest control. This natural approach shows in the Muratie wine, especially as the wine growers still hand-pick the grapes to avoid peel damage. The Muratie winery owns 45 hectares of cultivation area on which red as well as white grape varieties are planted. The soil is relatively dry which is why the land is watered after the harvest. Only by doing this, the winemakers can supply the next vintage with sufficient nutrients. The 300-year-old yard offers great products in all types of wine, but especially the Shiraz caused a stir internationally.

The Landscape around Muratie

Muratie wine benefits from the good location in South Africa, but even more from the passionate winemakers who deliver premium wine of an international level, year after year, and with great love for detail. Who ever visited Muratie surely noticed the many oak trees - these used to be considered as a protection against wild animals. Nowadays, they make for a breath-taking atmosphere for guests and wine enthusiasts who visit Muratie.
