This Merlot offering from Rust en Vrede, affirms their excellence as red wine specialists.
Ripe plums, mulberry, liquorice, thyme and cured meats on the nose follow through on the palate – showing this complex wine as juicy and savoury simultaneously.
Judicious use of oak alongside skin tannins add spice and structure whilst firmly supporting the fruit.
This is a serious yet effortless Merlot – beautiful to drink now but will reward cellaring for the next decade
