Wine Description:
Cederberg Merlot-Shiraz is a premium red wine produced by Cederberg Private Cellar, a renowned winery located in the Cederberg Mountains of South Africa. The wine is made from a blend of Merlot and Shiraz grapes, grown in the unique terroir of the Cederberg appellation. The vineyards are situated at high altitudes, which results in cooler temperatures and longer ripening periods, allowing the grapes to develop complex flavors and aromas. The winemaking process involves careful selection of the grapes, followed by fermentation and aging in French oak barrels. The resulting wine is a rich and full-bodied red, with notes of dark fruit, spice, and a hint of vanilla. It is a perfect accompaniment to hearty meat dishes and strong cheeses.
Pros:
  • Rich, complex aromas of dark fruit, spice, and earth

Wine Expert Note:

This Cederberg Merlot-Shiraz blend is a truly remarkable expression of South African terroir. On the nose, it presents a medley of ripe fruits including blackberries, cherries and plums, interwoven with notes of tobacco, leather and subtle hints of cedar and cloves. On the palate, the wine is well balanced, with juicy but refined tannins and a gentle acidity that gives it a pleasant freshness. The finish is long and lingering, with a subtle spiciness that lingers on the tongue. Enjoy this wine now, or cellar for up to five years for further complexity.
