Landskroon Paul de Villiers Merlot 2017

Landskroon Paul de Villiers Merlot 2017

Rich and full-bodied with a delicious flavor of berry fruits and an undertone of dark chocolate. An excellent balance of finely strutured tannins, brooding dark fruits, freshness and length of aftertaste.

The quintessential Sunday Roast wine, it is as comfortable with the roasted meats, real gravy, and traditional accompaniments as it is with a cut off the coals at a family barbecue or a platter of charcuterie and artisanal cheeses. Serve at 16 - 19°C.
