Hoopenburg Merlot 2001

Veritas 2003 - Bronze
Bright ruby red in colour, this Merlot has ripe red berry fruit aromas. The palate is tasty, slightly spicy, with wome deliciously sweet oak vanillins coming through. A medium-bodied wine, though its fairly high alcohol and firm, dry tannins will stand up to strongly flavoured dishes and probably do well with anything, even chilli.
