Wine of South Africa
A well-rounded, medium bodied, cherry and fruit cake scented red wine with succulent flavours of raspberries and plums. These intense fruit notes arise from ripe grapes which have benefited from warm days and cool nights in the heart of South Africas winelands. Produced by Overhex Wines International from Fairtrade certified vineyards in the Western Cape. Fairtrade means fairer trading conditions and opportunities for producers in developing countries to invest in their businesses and communities for a sustainable future. Winemakers Ben Snyman and Willie Malan together with M&Ss Sue Daniels have oak aged the wine for 4 months to retain the bright fruit while softening the wines structure. This fresh, wonderfully moreish Merlot is great to drink now, either on its own or as a lively accompaniment to tomato based pasta dishes, a grilled burger or chicken in spicy sauces.
