ME & MERLOT
STELLENBOSCH FAMILY WINES MERLOT
Made by respectively 16 years and 12 years old winemaker’s boys Carlo and Andro de Vries and their father with carefully selected grapes from the Stellenbosch area. This wine has a bouquet of fresh blackcurrant and hints of eucalyptus and cloves. Ripe tannins, delectable opulence and blackcurrant centre flavours on the palate with a lingering blackcurrant finish. Age for up to 8 years.
This fruit forward wine offers nuances of vibrant black berries, dark chocolate and Christmas spices on the nose. Soft, supple tannins and lingering mocha notes make this an amazingly accessible wine, enjoyed on its own or paired with a good meal.
