We are all about celebrating the good days, and International Merlot Day definitely calls for a glass or two.
We searched high and low for the top 3 Merlot wines in the country. Wait that’s a white lie. The Prescient Top 10 as judged by winemag.co.za did all the legwork for us.
Judged by Roland Peens and James Pietersen from Wine Cellar, Cape Town they concluded these to be the top 3 out of 52 entries.
You will be able to spot the top 10 wines by the distinct sticker that they get to add to their bottle to celebrate the accolade.
Described as light and fresh with crunchy tannins with a herbal note on the nose. Retails for R140.
Described with a rich and broad palate with a creamy texture. Aromas of plums and cassis that go with vanilla and a slight earthiness. Retails for R160.
Described as medium-bodied with a good fruit expression and fine tannins. Tones of top notes of flowers and berries, definitely need a finer nose for this one. Retails for R195.
Celebrate with us on 7 November with your favorite Merlot.
