Fleur du Cap Unfiltered Merlot.

Fleur du Cap Unfiltered Merlot 2009 is a full-bodied wine that has a complex nose of concentrated strawberry and red berry fruit with hints of white chocolate, subtle mint nuances and spicy oak notes. These layers of flavours all meld together on the palate enhanced by rich accents of fruitcake and cedar oak.

The tannins are firm and bode well for good ageing potential yet the wine is silky and soft with a velvety texture that lingers long after the finish. This succulent Unfiltered Merlot loves Parma ham and lamb kebabs and is the perfect match for hearty winter comfort food such as oxtail.

The Fleur du Cap Unfiltered Merlot 2009 sells at around R110 and is available at boutique wine stores and leading restaurants. The Carrol Boyes New Leaf pewter bottle stopper is available at Carrol Boyes outlets country wide.
