The medium-bodied Merlot from Boplaas Wines, boasts a distinctly fruit-driven palate with an appealing tannin structure that lends it a delicious easy-drinking quality. Expect to encounter decadent notes of red cherry, ripe plum and bramble jam that perform with weighty intensity alongside delicately spiced notes of vanilla and an intriguing undercurrent of aromatic fynbos. The intense fruit character is poised by an edge of natural acidity, providing wonderful balance. While soft, round tannins impart the wine with a smooth texture and pleasing length. Serve the Boplaas Merlot with a delicious smorgasbord of charcuterie and rich, mature cheeses.
