2012 Merlot, Thelema*
Western cape / South Africa
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
This lighter and more ELEGANT STYLE of Merlot is ideal with more delicate game dishes or with lamb
Deep, brooding purple in colour with some brick red highlights. The nose has pretty red-fruit characters with some hints of spices such as cinnamon and liquorice. The palate is juicy, broad and ripe, packed with red and black berry fruits, a firm, well integrated oaky structure and a bold, well defined finish which makes it a great food wine.
