This full-bodied wine is ruby red in color with ripe berries, subtle cherries and oak spices. On the palate this well-balanced Merlot is an easy drinking yet mouth-filling wine with ample clean soft fruit flavors and an oaky backup with gentle tannins. The Fleur du Cap Merlot is the perfect partner to spicy Mediterranean food, full-flavored fish, duck or guinea fowl.
Fleur du Cap – one of South Africa’s premier and best known wines – is one of the flagships of the Distell group, the country’s top producer and marketer of fine wines and spirits. The first vintages were produced at Die Bergkelder, one of the world’s most advanced underground cellars, built in 1968. Their wines reflect the generosity of nature and the dedication by our devoted team in this famous mountain cellar on the outskirts of the Stellenbosch Winelands. Their winemakers ensure that only the finest grapes and vineyard sites are selected in order to produce wines of abundant flavour and character.
