2013 Merlot / Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemakers Notes: Christian Kuun
A 89/11 blend of these two varieties, beautifully crafted in a new world style. This fruit driven wine boasts glorious dark currant, berry and sweet cassis flavours, with hints of spice, dark mocha and subtle cigar box. Complimenting firm, ripe tannins and an integrated acid give this wine superb struc-ture and ageing potential. Cellared correctly, this truly tan-talizing wine will continue to mature for another 3-5 years.
Great with Pizza and compliment to many ‘braai’ (barbecue) dishes.
