Amani – Merlot 2011
“Scrumptious Merlot from one of the cultivars best producers here in SA”
Amani means “Place of peace” in Swahili, and this small producer on the Kanonkop in Stellenbosch Hills is exactly that. Owned by the Myer’s family, originally from Oklahoma and heavily involved in SA horse-racing scene, the wines first debuted in 1997 and immediately scooped a Double Gold at Veritas. Growing from strength to strength the Award Cabinet continued to fill under the very talented wine-maker Carmen Stevens. Amani gained an enviable permanent listing on the Blue Train.
