  • STEENBERG MERLOT 2019

    Wine Club price R177.65 p/b

    Your same favourite wine with a fresh new look! We have released the new packaging of Steenberg Merlot featuring an elegant, contemporary aesthetic.

    Our 2019 Merlot is a quintessential cool-climate expression of the cultivar: elegant with soft red fruit and characteristic notes of vanilla, tobacco, and cinnamon with a lively edge. The nose offers sour cherry, dried sage and plum, while the smooth palate reveals raspberry preserve, umami and spicy clove. The velvety texture is enhanced by a refreshing acidity, while well-integrated, fine tannins add structure and a dry finish luring you back to the glass. This medium to full bodied wine will stand up to rich dishes with strong
    Mediterranean flavours, such as braised and roast meats, tomato-based stews, mature cheese, and briny olives. Will bottle age well for five to seven years after bottling.

    The life of Catharina Ras, Steenberg’s remarkable founder, was one of adventure and zeal and can be imagined into a tale of FIVE chapters with each chapter offering Catharina a series of seemingly insurmountable challenges.

    These FIVE chapters illustrate the FIVE LIVES of Catharina and how she was able to harness her courage, adapt and be resilient through each new challenge and each new life.

    With Steenberg Five Lives Red Blend, we show admiration to Catharina’s life-long resilience and courage.

    The FIVE chapters are narrated on a series of different back labels. Collect them all to discover the story.

    Steenberg Five Lives expresses an intense dark red hue with a lighter, garnet red on the rim. The nose displays prominently with blackcurrant cassis and notes of fennel, prune and cinnamon. It is a medium to full-bodied wine, showing a silky texture and depth, as well as an elegant tannin structure. Flavours of smooth blackberry jam lead into star anise and ground spice. The mid palate has a juicy cherry compote fruit profile with the acidity tempering a slight richness. Merlot forms the backbone of this wine with clean, bright fruit which add subtle freshness. The Cabernet Sauvignon brings a formal, earnest profile to the blend and the Malbec rounds it all off with fruit weight. This wine is showing beautifully now and will reward cellaring for up to 5 years.
