Little Merlot

Wine of Origin Stellenbosch

Our Little Merlot is a wine that emphasizes the fruity side of this variety. It pleases with fresh berry flavors and a silky texture and offers early drinking pleasure.

The Little Merlot is the little brother of the Bein Merlot, hence the name. It is vinified with the same care and style and matured in third and fourth fill barrels. It is made from batches deriving from the more vigorous parts of our vineyard or from younger wines. Like our flagship wine, it is regularly complemented with a splash of another Bordeaux variety, such as Cabernet, Malbec or Petit Verdot.

This wine is generally less tannic and accessible earlier than the Bein Merlot. We see it as a serious wine, well able to mature for another 2-4 years. It is ideally served at 18ºC, and shows well as companion to a meal.,With its attractive berry flavours and its juicy texture, it sits well on any table, from vegetarian to richly sauced beef.
