Joey Merlot

2021 Gartelmann Joey Merlot

NAME 
This wine has been named after Jan Gartelmann’s grandson Joey.

SINGLE VINEYARD
The cooler climate with the vineyard results in a slow ripening season, adding to the complexity of the wine. Sloping reddish brown clay-loam mixed with sandstone and pebbles, provides good drainage and mineral input. 

MATURATION
Kept in 25% new French Oak puncheons, with the balance in 1-3 year old French puncheons and hogshead for 14 months. 

TASTING NOTES
Maturation for 14 months has delivered a very full bodied wine with velvet tannins giving structure to a soft rounded palate. 

FOOD MATCHING
Good cheese, a roast duckling, pork and roasted smoky BBQ’d anything.

CELLARING
Drink from 2022, great from 2024, or cellar until 2026+.
