Cederberg Merlot - Shiraz 2017

Cederberg Merlot - Shiraz 2017

Sweet plums and blackcurrants from the merlot and cherries and spice from the shiraz. A wine that is very accessible and smooth with fruity flavours lingering on the palate. 

This red blend is a must with every braai, but also suited to rich game dishes.
