One hundred years ago there were 500,000 rhinos. Now there are just 25,000 left in Africa. Why not hold a Rhino wine tasting with your friends, and help raise funds through buying this wine.

This Merlot Shiraz blend has red and black fruit aromas, salami on the nose with a hazelnut finish hanging in the air. Slightly smoky with a marmite character on the palate and with a cool minty nuance.

Serve with red meats, red sauce pastas, lamb, strong-flavoured cheese, and even dark chocolates.

Producer Information

Rising from the heart of the picturesque Wellington Valley is a mountain known as Groenberg, or Green Mountain. Nestling in its verdant foothills, with sweeping views across the Boland to distant Table Mountain, is the historic Slangerivier Farm - a wine estate that embraces the diversity of nature that is Wellington. Linton Park Wines captures the history, personality and style that can only be truly South African. The homestead and farm, which dates back to 1699, stands as a monument to the farm's proud viticultural heritage. The magnificent farm of over 290 hectares, with various cultivars such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. One of the highest vineyards in South Africa, situated on the lush slopes of the Groenberg, where higher rainfall, more moderate summer and winter temperatures, and rich Oakleaf soils combine to create a distinctively favourable micro-climate, and unique terroir.
