Zevenwacht Merlot 2011

Rich and generous with plush concentrated flavours of plums, chocolate and a combination of red and black cherries. Waves of up front ripe red fruit, ripe strawberries with hints of red cherries that cover the palate from start to finish. For those with a fondness for a softer yet full-bodied Merlot, then this is your investment wine - a wine that, with maturation, will reward you handsomely.

Terrific with meaty fish such as Tuna or Salmon or with goat's cheese on a wild mushroom and spinach salad or a tasty pizza.
