A delicious Merlot from idyllic terroir and one of South African's rising winemakers for terrific, great value every day wines.
Nose of ripe cherry, a touch of coffee and spice notes. Just a very comfortable Merlot that's drinking well now.
So good with pizza, pasta, or grilled chicken.
The nose shows lovely ripe cherry characters, backed up by smoky coffee and spice notes. The palate is soft, yet has a good structure for medium term ageing.
45% of the total wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak for a period of 8 months, whilst the remaining wine was aged in stainless steel tanks.
