Description

Merlot - Red South African Wine

An elegant combination of ripe plum and black cherry complemented by a whisper of dark chocolate that lends complexity to this wine. The ripe, rounded tannins further enhance the smooth style. So smooth and fruity, it can be drunk on its own or with simple pasta and pizza dishes.

We create our Waterfront Bay wines from specially selected parcels of grapes sourced from within our family of FirstCape growers

Grape Variety:

Merlot

Vinification Details:

Fully ripe grapes are fermented in Stainless Steel tanks to retain the fruity, red and black berry notes of the Merlot

History:

Our wines are all grown and produced by a dynamic team of neighbouring farmers, all co-owners of the FirstCape brand. We believe this is the best way to guarantee the quality of FirstCape, as they care more about the wines from the vine to the shelf.

Regional Information:

Produced and owned by neighbours around the Breede River Valley in the Western Cape. The vineyards are in the lee of the Slanghoek mountains whose cooling shade allows the vines to retain their fresh acidity while still developing ripe fruit flavours.
