Diemersfontein Merlot 2001

Diemersfontein Merlot 2001

Michelangelo International Wine Award 2002 - Silver
A medium intense wine with ruby red colour. On the nose a pleasant berry richness with hints of raspberry and strawberry jam, creating expectations of a wine to be drunk young. This intense fruitiness follows through on the palate and is well balanced with the ripe subtle tannins, creating a wine which is very accessible.
