Friesland Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
“A premium red wine without the price tag. Wonderfully structured with silky smooth tannins.”
R180.00 per bottle (South Africa)
Cape Wine Master De Bruyn Steenkamp created this beautiful Stellenbosch blend that is full-bodied and well-balanced.
The Merlot was fermented on the skins for 8 days and transferred to French oak for 10 months. The Cabernet Sauvignon component was also left on the skins for 8 days and spent 6 months on French oak staves.
The Merlot brings soft tannins to the blend whilst the Cabernet Sauvignon component adds structure and weight.
A truly beautiful full-bodied blend with a dark maroon core and classy finish.
70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon
