Nederburg Merlot 2019
Nederburg’s core range of varietal and blended wines is an expression of its proud legacy of winemaking excellence, dating back to 1791. These classically styled, foodfriendly wines with abundant fruit flavours, elegance and finesse, treasure the integrity of the grapes in every step of the wine-growing and winemaking journey. Every drop demonstrates an unwavering commitment to world-class vineyard and cellar skills.
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
Rounded, svelte red fruit aromas with black cherries, chocolate and a hint spice.
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.
Excellent with barbecued red meats and casseroles, venison, beef burgers, pizza and pasta dishes.
