A Few Good Men Merlot 2009

Harvested from an exceptional vineyard in the Riebeek Valley, the beautiful Merlot grapes used for the A Few Good Men Merlot resulted in rich flavours of fruitcake and ripe plum that follow through in a seductive pallet with a smooth juicy finish. After being in French barrels for nine months, this Merlot perfectly balances fruit and oak to ensure a well-rounded and structured wine.

At room temperature. Especially compliments Malay dishes and smoked chicken.
