Blaauwklippen Merlot Reserve 2011

Deliciously rich and concentrated. This wine has aromatic layers of blackcherry, coconut, chocolate, clove and cinnamon. The long finish of cherry and plum with light oak toffee notes from oak aging makes for a complex drinking experience. A wine with great ageing potential.

Pasta, rich flavoured red meats and game stew.
