Wine of Stellenbosch, South Africa. Merlot - Red South African Wine. Our Merlot is the result of a careful selection of our French oak barrels. This wine will drink well now either by itself or with red and white meats and cheeses. It has added cellaring potential of 5-10 years. At the turn of the 19th Century, Annie Rozier, a flower merchant, would come to pick flowers on the surrounding hills in Stellenbosch. The fertile soils helped her business to flourish and resulted in our historic homestead, which bears her name, being built. Since then, these same hills have also been planted with vineyards, which produce wines of exceptional elegance and complexity.
