Meerlust Stellenbosch Merlot 2015 £24.95
MEERLUST STELLENBOSCH MERLOT
Deep, youthful purple colour with a ruby rim. Intense dark brambly fruit on the nose, mulberry, liquorice and damson plum with hints of dark chocolate and spice, tempered by a stony minerality.
The full-bodied palate offers generous, ripe, pure Merlot fruit with refreshing acidity, structured yet silky tannins and pronounced length and minerality.
There is a core of juiciness, opulence and richness typical of the variety, while the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot lend greater complexity to the wine.
92 Points Platters Wines Guide
Notably Bordeaux-like 2015, with classic berry & cigarbox aromas leading to fine balance of fruit, acid & firm dry tannins. Dollops of cab franc & petit verdot add to complexity. Savoury notes, with underlying generosity of fruit expressed with restraint. Deserves many years maturation in bottle.
