South Africa
Merlot
Red Wine

Wine Spectator Notes : Straightforward, with a medium-weight beam of cherry and red currant preserve flavors, lined with subtle mint and singed cinnamon hints. Drink now.

Tasting Notes : An elegant, classic style of Merlot with a ruby red colour and distinctive plum and cherry flavours complemented by savoury and earthy notes typical of Merlot. The wine is soft with gentle tannins and hints of dark chocolate and black cherry. The finish is long and lingering. This medium-bodied wine is wonderful just by itself or pairs well with roast chicken, lamb stew, lasagne and barbecues. The Jan Fiskaal (scal shrike) is a common sight in these vineyards. A small bird with a fierce reputation for driving out pests, its characteristic “chee-chee-chee” cry and black-and-white colouring make it easily recognisable.
