Hoopenburg Merlot -  2018 Bush Vine

Hoopenburg Merlot - 2018 Bush Vine

Some of the best Merlots find their origins in Stellenbosch . Being cooler, the region gives the wine body and intensity. This wine is well rounded and smooth, well structured, with an abundance of red fruit. Soft, yet lingering tannins complete this beautiful wine.

This soft and palatable wine pairs well with a variety of red meats, cold meats and carpaccio. It is great with pasta dishes and delicious with crab curry.
