A Taste of Merlot

UK Wine expert Jancis Robinson says Merlot tends to be noticeably lower in tannins and acidity than Cabernet, which makes it much more voluptuous to taste & South Africa has already shown just how gorgeous an oak-aged Merlot ripened in a relatively warm climate can be. Merlot really is a crowd-pleaser. If you like smooth, silky and a little bit savoury - then you cant go wrong with this pack. It is the most-planted variety in France and commonly used in Bordeaux Blends.

Eikendal Merlot : The Eikendal Merlot 2017 has an attractive nose that reminds one of forest floor, violets, plums, black berries, cherries and peppery spices. On the palate the wine and full and rounded, with soft tannins and a rich taste of black berries and plums. The elegant finish is long and pleasant.

Elgin Vintners Merlot : Deep ruby velvet in colour with an exotic nose combining red plums, black berries, blueberries, violets, cardamom and walnuts that follows though onto the palate. Silky tannins combined with a rich purity of fruit and somewhat savoury finish distinguish this seamless wine as a great ambassador for Merlot from the cool climate Elgin region.
