Smooth, juicy and ripely fruity Merlot from a highly awarded family property. This creamy smooth, plum rich red is the ultimate in drinkability. A simple, no-nonsense red that is as enjoyable on its own as it is with your weekday supper.
The vineyards of this excellent estate have been in the family for generations, but the modern cellar is new, winning double Gold in the first vintage. It lies in the Breede River Valley, a region renowned not only for fruity wines, but also for raising champion horses. In fact, the family has specialised in both for years. Halfway is a creamy smooth, juicy plum red that commemorates a split in the family. One brother wanted to breed horses, the other grow vines. To establish the estate’s halfway point, they each rode to the opposite perimeter, then galloped as fast as they could. Their meeting point became the dividing line. No hard feelings and today’s owners remain keen equestrians. A great red solo, or with barbecues or simple suppers.
"Very enjoyable silky Merlot with soft tannins. Sweet plum and berry fruit. Lovely wine at this price"
