Merlot * 75cl * 13% ABV * Stellenbosch, South Africa
The Waterkloof Estate prides itself on following biodynamic winemaking and by not using chemical herbicides or pesticides, the end result is high-quality, terroir-driven wines with character and integrity. Whilst Merlot was somewhat unfairly maligned after the film Sideways was released - in the wine trade we all know 'that' famous line - it is regaining its popularity. Light red berries, sour plums and floral notes, with bright acidity and a juicy palate. Would suit barbecued duck and grilled lamb dishes.
