Saxenburg Private Collection Merlot 2000
“The private collection represents the cornerstones of Saxenburg. A perfect expression of terroir, and uncompromising consistency in both elegance and value.”
Only selected vineyards or specific parts of vineyards were harvested for this outstanding Merlot. Now 23 years old, this vintage has truly stood the test of time.
Once harvested the juice was fermented on the skins for 2 weeks before barrel maturation in French oak for 14 months.
The nose is fruit forward with a delicate combination of dark plum and dark cherries.
Tertiary hints of leather come through on the palate with spicy undertones and grippy tannins.
The winemakers at Saxenburg have paid utter care and attention in the aging and storing of this wine in idyllic conditions for all these years.
All of our private customers now have exclusive access to the Saxenburg Vinoteque.
