We are happy to announce that Avontuur Estate now once again has a single varietal Merlot for sale after the last single varietal vintage of 1999.
The 2016 Merlot is in a Magnum bottle with a burgundy-coloured soft wax top and is already proving a hit in the tasting room at R350 per bottle.
“The wine is soft and juicy with lots of dark fruit on the nose and palate but what I really love is that unexpected savouriness on the palate which just gives it that spike of interest,” says winemaker Jan van Rooyen.
It’s also a great gift for a red wine lover and will age graciously for another few years in the bottle. Or just open it this festive season and enjoy!
