IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SHIPPING & DELIVERY

Protea Merlot

Regular price $18.00

South African wine production has long been a political endeavour, beginning with the first plantings with the Dutch East India Company, to economic protests in the 20th Century over apartheid.It has only been recently that South African wines have been taken seriously in the international market. It is now one of the top ten wine-producing regions in the world and is known for producing wines of quality and value. Most South African Merlot is grown in the Stellenbosch coastal region, which is the second oldest in South Africa. Although Merlot is not generally categorized among South Africa's most premium wines, these unblended Merlots are known as dependably easy drinking, fruit forward wines with soft tannins.
Tasting Notes: Bright blue and black berry fruit aromas with a light leafy brush and cocoa nuances. In the mouth the wine is immediately fruity, supple, soft and rounded with abundant juiciness. The rich, dark berries come through, along with the gentle spice and cocoa notes. The texture or mouthfeel is plush and velvety which makes this a very appealing, drinkable wine. Good pliable structure and length of flavour. 
Food Pairings: Full bodied but low acidity - we recommend serving with meat dishes such as lamb, beef or venison.
