Case of Steenberg Merlot
Our 2018 Merlot is a quintessential cool-climate expression of the cultivar: elegant with soft red fruit and characteristic notes of vanilla, cedar and clove with a lively edge. The nose offers sour cherry, tobacco leaf and plum, while the palate reveals redcurrant, vanilla and spicy clove.
The velvety texture is enhanced by refreshing acidity, while well-integrated, fine tannins add structure.
This fuller-bodied wine will stand up to rich dishes with strong Mediterranean flavours, such as braised and roast meats, tomato-based stews, mature cheeses and briny olives. Will bottle age well for five to seven years after bottling.
