MERLOT


The Jan Fiskaal (fiscal shrike) is a common sight in our vineyards. A small bird with a fierce reputation for driving out pests, its characteristic “chee-chee-chee” cry and black-and-white colouring make it easily recognisable.

Dark berry fruit and subtle tannins make this classically styled Merlot an easy favourite.
It's all here – the cigar box, mocha and chocolate flavours that Merlot fans love, plus soft gentle tannins and an elegant, long finish.

From the winemaker:
This is our guaranteed crowd-pleaser. The bold red-berry fruit and oak spice aromas are followed by ripe berry and chocolate flavours and completed with gentle tannins and a long finish. Our Merlot's complexity is thanks to the Stellenbosch fruit that's blended with 85% of grapes from the Agter-Paarl region, and the delicate oak notes come from about 15-20% of the wine being barrel-matured for 12-15 months.

Pairing:
This is easy – you can pair the Jan Fiskaal Merlot with pretty much any dish. But don't think you have to wait for a meal, it's just as good on its own!
