Mooiplaas Merlot - Cabernet Franc 2015
(R864.00 for 6 x 750ml)
A blend of two iconic Bordeaux varieties. Merlot brings fruit and elegance whilst the Cabernet Franc adds perfume, spice and structure. This is a medium-bodied wine with aromas of blackcurrants, mulberries and a hint of fynbos on the nose. Soft, rounded tannins, well-balanced with a lingering finish.
A great companion for grilled beef, venison and tomato based vegetarian dishes.
