  • STEENBERG MERLOT 2017

    p/b R190.00

    Wine Club price R161.50 p/b

    Our 2017 Merlot is an excellent expression of the cultivar: rich with juicy red fruit and characteristic herbal highlights of lavender, fennel and anise with a lively eucalyptus edge. The nose offers cherry and redcurrant, while the palate reveals sour cherry, dark chocolate and spicy clove. Velvety texture is enhanced by refreshing acidity, while well-integrated tannins add structure. This fuller-bodied wine will stand up to rich dishes with strong Mediterranean flavours, such as braised and roast meats, tomato-based stews, mature cheeses and briny olives. Will bottle age well for five to seven years after bottling.
