Diemersfontein Merlot 2019

Diemersfontein Merlot 2019

Inviting ripe red berries supported by undertones of star anise and cinnamon. Classic and elegant. Wonderfully soft and subtle while the medium-bodied structure lingers well at the end.

Diemersfontein Merlot pairs harmoniously with Mediterranean Lamb burgers, Roast chicken with Thyme and onions or Veal served with Portabello mushrooms. Merlot’s ample acid structure also does surprisingly well with tomato based dishes.
