Product information


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 Limited Release wines from specially selected parcels of grapes sourced from within our family of FirstCape growers.

Vinification Details:

The majority of this wine is fermented at a low temperature to retain the fruity, red and black berry notes of the Merlot, but a small percentage is fermented in oak barrels to give a smoky, spicy dimension


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:

Our FirstCape wines are all made from grapes grown in the Western Cape of South Africa, throughout the beautiful Breede River Valley just an hour's drive from Cape Town
