Meerlust 2014 Red
37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc, 9% Petit Verdot | Alc: 14.0% – Smooth & Supple
Stellenbosch, South Africa
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.
The name Meerlust means “pleasure of the sea”, as the property is situated 5km from False Bay.
Pairs well with Casseroles, venison, game or cheese dishes. Also great with spicy dishes.
