£14.95 per bottle

About this wine

The Meerlust Red 2016 is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.  The nose is expressive with powerful cassis, plum, exotic spice and hints of floral aromas, whilst on the palate intense flavours of crushed black fruit, cassis, vanilla and dark chocolate show through. A gorgeous medium bodied red with soft and silky tanins, fresh acidity and a focused and linear flavour profile. The wine has a persistent and long-lasting aftertaste.

Food pairing: Pairs well with venison, game or cheese dishes. Also great with spicy dishes.

Ageing potential: 10-12 years from vintage date under ideal cellar conditions
