De Grendel, Merlot

Background information

De Grendel Wines lies on the famous Cape farm dating back to 1720 and home to the Graaff family for five generations. Baronet Sir David Graaff established the vineyards and modern wine cellar blending the most modern wine-making techniques with the farm’s heritage and eco-caring. The vineyards overlook Table Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean with coastal mists, cooling breezes and ancient blue shale, well-drained soils leading to our elegant wines.

Tasting note

A full-bodied wine filled with a combination of different berries on the nose. Complex Christmas cake flavours, mulberry, raspberry, and blackberry fruit are accompanied by liquorice and mocha which are well-supported by firm French oak tannins.

Food match

Perfect served alongside a roast rib of beef.
