Replenish your winter wine stocks with a smooth-as-velvet Steenberg Merlot perfect for enjoying by the fire or paired with home-style comfort food. Don’t be caught off guard, purchase your Merlot online now for delivery after lockdown.
Rich and juicy, teeming with concentrated red fruit, this is a wine of distinctive character. Cherry and redcurrant meld beautifully with lavender, fennel and anise topped by a lively eucalyptus edge. The wine rewards with a mouthful of sour cherries, dark chocolate and spicy cloves.
Crafted for the long haul from vines on the cool Steenberg foothills, the 2017 vintage matured for 15 months in new and older French oak barrels. The result is a vibrant Merlot with the tannins and acidity perfectly intertwined.
“Steenberg Merlot has a velvety texture enhanced by refreshing acidity. The well-integrated tannins and full structure help the wine stand up to rich dishes with strong Mediterranean flavours,” says Cellarmaster Elunda Basson.
“Rich, smooth and heartwarming – nothing beats Steenberg Merlot with this winning winter recipe,” adds Basson.
Steenberg Merlot 2017 is available at a cellar door price of R 190 and can be purchased online now HERE for delivery after the lockdown restrictions allow it.
