Ernie Els Merlot 2009

The beauty of this exceptional 2009 vintage immediately shows in the bright purple colour and shimmering edge. Notes of cherries, plums and rasberries line a lively nose, following through to a full but spritely and elegant palate. There is an enduring combination of subtly and power with the rich ripeness balancing silky tannins and a lushes texture. This suave merlot is difficult to put down, even at this embryonic stage!
