Bein  Merlot

Wine of Origin Stellenbosch

The Bein Merlot is a Merlot in classic Pomerol style, elegant and complex. It is our flagship, the optimal synthesis from the wines of our various batches, reflecting best the integrated terroir of our cool southern slope. This wine strives for perfect balance between primary fruit and sweet-spicy barrel flavours.

This Merlot is matured for one year in small 225L oak barrels, of which between 35% and 70% are new, made up of about 95% tight-grain oak from central France, and about 5% American oak for complexity. Our Merlot is generally complemented with a splash of one of the other classic Bordeaux varieties, often Cabernet Sauvignon or Cabernet franc, but also Malbec or Petit Verdot, depending on the vintage.

After bottling, we allow the wine to mature another year in the bottle before release. It can be enjoyed young, but will certainly reward the patient connoisseur over many years.with beautiful maturation flavours.

Serving suggestion: Serve at 18ºC, open an hour before or decant. Best with a hearty meal such as roast venison or a juicy pasta dish. Also delicious with fine cheese and bread.
