The Meerlust Merlot was already showing great approachability and charm. The dark fruit and opulence of the wine is immediately apparent. We have been refining the viticulture to produce more balanced, flavourful fruit. Intense dark brambly fruit on the nose, mulberry, liquorice and damson plum with hints of dark chocolate and spice, tempered by a stony minerality. The medium-full bodied palate offers generous, ripe, pure Merlot fruit with refreshing acidity, structured yet silky tannins and pronounced length and minerality. There is a core of juiciness, opulence and richness typical of the variety, while the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot lend greater complexity to the wine
Food Suggestions: Red meats, game and strong cheeses. Ideally served at 18°C – 19°C
cabernet franc (9%), merlot (85%), petit verdot (6%)
Ageing Potential: Up to 12 years, provided wine is stored in ideal cellar conditions
