Fleur du Cap
Essence du Cap Merlot
This full-bodied, ruby colored red has aromas of dark chocolate, black cherry and plums underlined by elegant wood spices. On the palate this well-balanced wine is velvety soft yet mouth filling with clean, soft fruit and a touch of sweet oak. These complex flavors linger on the finish.
This wine is the perfect partner to spicy Mediterranean food, fish or duck.
About this wine
About the Winemaker
Fleur du Cap (French for “Flower of the Cape”) is greatly inspired by the Cape Floral Kingdom – a wildflower region famed for its natural beauty and rich biodiversity – with each species blossoming in the specific soil and climate best suited to their needs. It is this Cape Floral Kingdom that has greatly inspired our wines to not be defined by a single place or vineyard. Our philosophy is based around the freedom to explore – to find our grapes where they grow best, rather than be constrained by district, farm, climate or even vineyard. Our winemakers have access to the widest geography of vineyards in South Africa. This unrestricted journey across the Cape Winelands is what allows them to craft highly-lauded wines which exemplify regional excellence. --
