An elegant combination of ripe plum and black cherry complemented by dark chocolate that lends complexity to this blend. Our most popular red wine from FirstCape, a delicious mix of easy-drinking fruit and subtle sophistication. Our wines are all grown and produced by a dynamic team of neighbouring farmers, all co-owners of the FirstCape brand. We believe this is the best way to guarantee the quality of FirstCape, as they care more about the winesfrom the vine to the shelf. Our FirstCape wines are all made from grapes grown in the Western Cape of South Africa, throughout the beautiful Breede River Valley just an hour's drive from Cape Town. The majority of this wine is fermented at a low temperature to retain the fruity, red and black berry notes of the Merlot, but a small percentage is fermented in oak barrels to give a smoky, spicy dimension. Matthew Jukes, The Daily Mail 23.09.07;""A monumental achievement, one of the best value merlots I have ever tasted.""Limited Release Merlot 2006.
