Organic grapes sourced from Stellenbosch. A full-bodied Merlot with fine-grained tannins and great structure that will age well. Wood ageing on 2nd, 3rd and 4th fill barrels, giving a softer extraction. Limited production & vegan friendly.
Go Italian with spaghetti and meatballs, lasagne and similar veggie dishes, macaroni & cheese, meatloaf and burgers. Grilled chops with thyme and rosemary. Or think steak, especially in a red wine sauce. And roast chicken or turkey.
