RESERVE RANGE

Here we are solely responsible for the cultivation of the vines and selection of the fruit, mostly from our family property in Stellenbosch, just 5 kms from the cool Atlantic and in the sheltered lee of the majestic Helderberg mountain. This range includes older vineyards, showing more depth of character and concentration. Ideal food wines, with structure and elegance.

TASTING NOTES
Pat’s Garden Merlot has always been a blend of predominantly Merlot with the addition of about 8%-12% Cabernet Franc. This ‘blend’ conveniently fell within the legal framework for a wine labelled as a single varietal wine ... ‘all wine may be blended up to a maximum of 15%’.

We thought, why is the magic number 15%?

So, we set about doing some exploration using 4 of the traditional Bordeaux grapes: Merlot, Cabernet Franc,  Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon...The result?
