Kanu Merlot Limited Release 1998

Ruby with a cerise rim. A nose of cherries, chocolate, eucalyptus and a herbaceous hint. It’s a big, rich wine, full of fresh fruitiness and complexity. The flavours unfold delightfully on the tongue, revealing hints of cherries, nuttiness and freshness. Reminiscent of rich, mature fruit cake. Kanu Merlot will gain in intricacy for three to five years and will be finest after the millennium. Ideal with ox-tail; pork rib on the fire; venison casserole; barbecued, butterflied leg of lamb with rosemary and garlic; oven baked duck with a cherry sauce; and rare ostrich fillet.
