Ugh!! Need to ship it back to South Africa. We bought this in a local wine store for $2.97.
This wine is made from a blend of 60% Cabernet and 40% Merlot. Each different lot of grapes was vinified separately so fermentation could be individually tailored to the different grapes.
The juice was left to macerate on the skins for five to seven days. Then the skins were removed, pressed and a small part of the pressed juice added back and fermentation was completed. This technique gives the wine more body and color. The final blend was made after fermentation was complete and before bottling.
