Riebeek Cellars – Merlot

 – DOWNLOAD PDF

 

One of the most popular wines in the Riebeek range, the Merlot has beautiful flavours and a soft and mellow taste that is hard to resist.

The style is elegant with distinctive red berries and well-integrated wood flavours on the nose. The pallet is velvety and smooth with an aftertaste that lingers with the juicy flavours of abundant berries.

 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Serve at room temperature. This mellow and fruity Merlot can easily be enjoyed on its own, but is also very versatile when it comes to the table. A perfect partner with lighter red meat dishes, spaghetti bolognaise and chicken, the Merlot is also the ideal if you prefer red wine with your vegetarian meal and pasta.

 

RIEBEEK CELLARS’ VELVETY TANNINS

Velvety tannins are typical of wines from the Swartland wine region, leaving a rich and lasting sensation on the palate. The medium to full-bodied reds have a characteristic spiciness on the nose – this is, after all, ‘Shiraz Country’ – and soft, welcoming tannins which leave a rich and lasting sensation on the palate. Alternative oak and barrel maturation ensures flavours that are well integrated and a texture that is lush and velvety.

Truly, this is a selection that offers something for everyone, every day; a warm welcome for travelers wanting to sample the pride of our valley, and a rich reward for the most discerning connoisseur.
