Product information

Description

This remarkable red wine is named after John X Merriman, who was hugely influential in rescuing this estate back in the late 19th Century (he also went on to become Prime Minister of the Cape), and is consistently better value than anything the Gironde serves up at this price level. More or less a 50/50 Cabernet/Merlot blend (with a pinch of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec) it has a stylishly plummy nose, with a palate of damson and cassis, black fruit and hints of cigar box. Fine, silky tannins on the palate. Very good wine, and something of a steal at this price - for lovers of fine Cape reds and good claret alike.
