Dombeya Merlot 2017


The 2017 vintage seems to be a carbon copy of 2015 vintage except for much less rain during the winter months. The farm used irrigation to make up for the lack of moisture in the soil resulting in grapes packed with explosive tannins and fruity flavours.

Winery Profile:
Created in the very heart of Stellenbosch, our hand crafted wines reflect the passion we have for this region and are a faithful representation of the place where they were born. The name Dombeya was the original name of the estate, paying homage to the Dombeya tree that is native to South Africa, with extraordinarily beautiful flowers that bring South Africa’s spring season to life. Dombeya trees are dotted around our vineyards, their cycle of regeneration and renewal a fitting symbol of modern day South Africa.
