Backsberg Merlot has a mid-palate of sweet raspberry and red plum is complemented by chocolate flavours from careful oak aging. This wine is beautifully smooth with fine, mouth-filling tannins. Sun worshiping, open-armed lyre trellised vines, ensure maximum fruit ripeness. Oak leaf and weathered granite soils ensure these vines are planted in soils rich in organic matter.
Pairs well with duck, lamb, sirloin steak, and pasta as well as being a delicious partner to chocolate and mint desserts.
