About the wine

Carmen's created a wine that tastes good and does good
  • Merlot is a challenge to grow in warm climates but having Angel backing helped Carmen to secure fruit from the right vineyards. By supporting local growers, the land is being preserved for generations to come and she can’t thank you enough!

  • Grapes from 4 different vineyards went into this powerful, fruity red from your Winemaker of the Decade. Carmen carefully handpicked and hand-sorted all the fruit to make sure only the best quality berries ended up in the tank.
  • Brimming with dark fruit flavours and aromas of ripe cherries, dark chocolate and toasted nuts, this beautifully balanced wine is perfect to drink now but can also be squirreled away for a good few years if you have the patience.

Serving advice
Open/decant 30 mins before serving

Food match
I simply love roasted pork belly. The pork belly served with oven baked sweet potato topped raspberries and a serving of blanched asparagus and a drop of truffle oil, yummy! The flavour compliment the Merlot 2018 to perfection.

Allergy advice
Contains Sulphites and egg. Always check the label.

Meet the winemaker - Carmen Stevens

  • From humble roots, Carmen blazed a trail, to become head winemaker at a prestigious winery in South Africa. Her wines won medals by the truckload, yet she couldn’t even get a bank overdraft to start her own business.
  • That was until Angel funding allowed her to finally fulfil her dream of setting up her own winery. Carmen has gone from strength to strength ever since, winning countless awards (including being voted your Winemaker of the Decade!)
  • With your support, coupled with her sheer passion and determination, Carmen is helping to create a better future for South African children. Over the past 4 years, she’s raised over half a million pounds to feed hungry school children in the slums just 30 minutes from beautiful Stellenbosch.
