The Meld is the only wine we bottled from the 2016 vintage. The 2016 vintage was the first in our new Krondorf winery where we had fermentation issues with our wild yeast ferments. What we have bottled is the very best of the successfully fermented parcels to give you a beautiful wine that is exceptional value. With a year of bottle age the Meld has settled into a lovely drinking window with lively red-blue fruits, cola, chocolate and spice. The mid palate is velvety and plush with succulent fruits that meld through to a long soft tannin finish . A perfect 'go to' wine now but it will continue to age gracefully over the next 10 years.
