Meerlust Red

$42.95 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

Ageing Potential:  12 - 15 years from vintage date.

Blend Information:  52% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot

KWV Café Culture Pinotage

The Café Culture us home to free spirits and trendsetters.  Their wine is different, a unique Pinotage with a distinct coffee Character.  Deliciously ripe Pinotage grapes have been persuaded to show an often hidden mocha flavour - nothing is added and nothing is taken away.

 

They enjoy it on its own while chatting and debating into the night, or with whatever food they choose, even dessert!  And they know it's best while still young.
