About the Winery
Diemersfontein has belonged to the Sonnenberg family for 3 generations, dating back to the early 1940s. David’s grandfather, Max, bought the 183-hectare farm, which lies in the shadow of the majestic Hawekwa Mountains and boasts a panoramic view of both Du Toit’s Kloof and Bains’ Kloof mountain ranges.
Diemersfontein Merlot 2018
About the wine
The Diemersfontein Merlot 2018 has inviting ripe red berries which are supported by undertones of star anise and cinnamon. Classic and elegant. Wonderfully soft and subtle while the medium-bodied structure lingers well at the end.

Grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness and vinified separately. Fermentation happened in tanks over 6 days, pressed, put back into the tank to finish malolactic fermentation. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was racked into 3rd fill barrels for 12 months until they were blended, stabilized and bottled.
