The 2016 Rustenberg Merlot has rich aromas of blackberries, cassis, eucalyptus and dark chocolate following through to a smooth palate that is both balanced and well-rounded with fine grained tannins. This wine can be enjoyed now or will benefit from maturation in ideal cellar conditions. Undeniably one of the Cape’s finest Merlots.
Merlot has been a mainstay red grape variety on Rustenberg since the late 1970’s where its lead role has been to complement Cabernet Sauvignon in blends. Rustenberg’s Merlots tend to be bigger and bolder in body and are structured to have excellent aging potential, pairing well with red meat based dishes and rewarding decanting before being served.
Ageing potential: 8 – 10+ years from vintage under ideal cellaring conditions
