Eikendal Merlot 2007

The wine has an attractive nose that reminds one of violets,
plums, black berries, cherries and peppery spices. On the
palate the wine and full and rounded, with soft tannins and a
rich taste of black berries and plums. The elegant finish is long
and pleasant.

Enjoy with Beef Carpaccio, lasagne or lamb burgerswith beetroot relish.
