Weltevrede Cherrychoc Merlot 2015

Weltevrede Cherrychoc Merlot 2015

The colour is deep red. On the nose you get prominent notes of ripe cherries and chocolate. The mid-palate is chunky with intense flavours of cherries, plums, bitter espresso and a pleasant dry finish of black pepper and dark chocolate.

Very versatile with food. This Merlot goes well with braai meats, steak, meaty pastas, smoked chicken and pork.

The Story
Instead of providing lengthy descriptions about a multifaceted wine, we decided to simply capture its essence and highlight a prominent characteristic in the name, Cherrychoc. So we created this bold Merlot with a smooth finish with a clear-cut, simple and identifiable label.

in the cellar : Gentle pressing ensures that we get the best juice and we still make use of the punch down method for colour extraction, while the wine ferments in open fermentation tanks.
