Merlot

This popular range of premium wines honours generations of Nederburg winemakers collaborating with nature to bring you these classically styled, food-friendly wines. 

The grapes were sourced from top-performing vineyards situated in the Darling, Cape Town and Stellenbosch wine-growing areas. The vines are grown in granite and sandstone soils with good water-holding capacity, resulting in grapes with a higher natural acidity and resulting freshness. Open vineyard canopies bring about greater sunlight penetration of the grape bunches, contributing to a well-balanced acidity, in turn contributing to better tannin structure and fruit expression as well as deeper colour intensity

COLOUR

Bright red.

BOUQUET

Rounded, svelte red fruit aromas with black cherries, chocolate and a hint spice.

PALATE

Black Forest Gateau in a glass! Flavours of cocoa and black cherry, with creamy texture and a hint of exotic masala spice and peppercorn. Refreshing and velvety.
