A Taste of Merlot

A Taste of Merlot
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 

  • 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.
  • Jordan Black Magic Merlot
    Double Platinum Top 100. The name Merlot is thought to be a diminutive of merle, the French name for the blackbird. At Jordan Wine Estate, the Merlot vineyards are based on Black Tourmaline-rich granite which darkens the soil, leading to perfumed, inky wines.
  • Laborie Merlot: This generous and vibrant Merlot shows prominent aromas of strawberry, sour cherry and pomegranate with nuances of herbs and cedary oak. the palate is accessible with indulgent tannins and a seamless finish.
  • Grande Provence Merlot : The Merlot has upfront notes of vibrant dark cherries and raspberries with hints of wild herbs, tomato leaf and dark chocolate enlivened by touches of cinnamon, cloves,orange peel and earthy tones. The palate is supported by a supple, smooth tannin structure.
  • Flagstone Poetry Merlot : This warm, rich ruby red wine shows great complexity on the nose. There is a mixture of dark red fruit, cigar box and mint aromas with well balanced wood. Sweet, spicy undertones give this wine great depth.
  • Kleine Zalze Cellar Selection Merlot : As always our Merlot show the typical characters of ripe red fruit followed by juicy fruit on the palate. The relatively warm and dry conditions led to a wine that is quite concentrated on the palate and has a good firm tannin profile and structure which will pair well with food. The fresh and natural acidity ensures a vibrant and lingering finish.
