Excelsior Robertson Merlot, South Africa
NAME OF WINE:
Breede River Valley, South Africa
14.5% - packs a punch!
Yep. Owning 220 hectares of their own vines and having a bottling line on site has allowed the winery to control all aspects of the winemaking. The De Wet family has also developed a social program which benefits its employees and the local community and, through the sales of Excelsior wines, has financed the building of a local crèche as well as the two teachers for the village school.
SUITABLE FOR VEGETARIANS/VEGANS:
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
On the nose this wine shows ripe cherry characters, backed up by smoky coffee and spice notes. The palate is soft, yet has a good structure for medium term ageing.
Steak for sure!
