Kaapzicht Merlot 2003

2008 International Wine & Spirit Competition - Silver & Best in Class
2008 AWC Vienna International Wine Challenge - Silver medal

Vibrant ruby with luscious black fruit, liquorice and mint-chocolate flavours. Oak treatment and well-handled tannins create a sleek muscular framework, which underpins the plump, ripe fruit core.
