About the wine

A delightfully moreish Merlot straight from Stellenbosch
  • Although this wine was bottled with a bit of extra CO2 to preserve the freshness, the fruit behind the slight spritz is ripe, soft and smooth. Give it a gentle shake (carefully) to remove any spritz you might perceive.
  • I've had my eye on this specific block for a while and I'm so glad to finally get my hands on the fruit. The close proximity of this vineyard to False Bay and the Atlantic ocean results in an early harvested crop, before the vines have started to bear any signs of heat-related stress - perfect for making juicy, fruity Merlot.
  • Youthful in appearance, expect an explosion of dark fruits and a lovely chalky texture that's dangerously moreish, easy-drinking, and oh so smooth.

Open/Decant 30 minutes before serving

Food match
As I type this out the air is still nippy, and there are a fair few cold fronts stacked up and yet to unload their winter rains. Traditionally this is the time for Potjie (much like your Denby Pot) stews and one of my favourites is what we call 'Water Blommetjie Bredie'. The Water Hyacinth is an indigenous lily growing in the Cape and flowering in winter. If you harvest it at just the right time, as the freshly fertilised flowers close and swell, it makes for a spicy accompaniment to stewing lamb. Served with white pepper and slow roast new potatoes, it is one of my all time winners.
