Stellenrust Simplicity 2006

Stellenrust Simplicity 2006

A unique Merlot based blend complimented with equal parts Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose overwhelmed by smokey Shiraz fruit whereas the palate is dominated by softer Merlot butter flavours and a long finish of moccha on the front palate derived from the Cabernet Sauvignon spending malo in French oak barrels. The nose shows full ripe smokey Shiraz fruit, but on the palate the Merlot and Cabernet is more evident bringing out strong dark berry and chocolate flavours with a tremendously long finish. Even two minutes after the palate has been tested, a strong flavour still exists on the front and mid palate. BUT still made in a style of easy drinking. Which was from the start the mission with this wine, hence the name Simplicity.
