Protea Merlot 2008

Appealing savoury nose of mulberry, cocoa, oreganum and fynbos.
Those dark berry flavours and rich cocoa notes are replicated on the palate. Although gentle in texture and with velvety tannins which make it glide sinuously over the tongue, there is a gutsy tar and earth grip anchoring it. Ripe fruit and restrained use of oak are obvious. A delicious, lingering wine.
