Meerlust Red

$45.95 aud

This wine was produced in limited quantities from young vines on the historic Meerlust Estate and will benefit from further ageing.

The wine has an intense, dark purple colour with a violet rim; bright and vivacious in the glass, youthful.

The nose is expressive with powerful cassis, plum, exotic spice and hints of floral aromas.

On the palate the wine is medium-bodied with intense flavours of crushed black fruit, cassis, vanilla and dark chocolate.

The tannins are soft and silky, the acidity fresh, the flavour profile focused and linear.

The wine has a persistent and long-lasting aftertaste

Painted Wolf Peloton Rouge

Inspired by Painted Wolves' stamina, persistence and teamwork, our pack or "peolon" ventures out on cycling safaris through the African bush that raise funds for the conservation of African Wild Dogs (Painted Wolves), and other endangered carnivores.

Taking your tastes buds on this wine adventure helps to secure the future of these rare and beautiful creatures.  We make a donation to the Endangered Wildlife Trust for each bottle sold, to support their wild dog projects in Africa.

Peloton Rouge is a brooding rich and spicy "cape blend" of Shiraz, Pinotage, Grenache, Mourvedre and Viognier with a long velvety finish.
