The hunt is over. We’ve found the smoothest, juiciest South African Merlot for you. The magician behind this artful, silky Escapist is a very talented hand who works at a top-rate family estate in Stellenbosch. Granted access to some of the very best vineyards in the Western Cape, he conjured up this fantastically easy-going Merlot. It’s bursting with fresh, herbal aromas and an abundance of juicy red fruits thanks to carefully selected parcels of grapes. From Atlantic-cooled sites, these grapes ripen to perfection under the bright Cape sun, whilst retaining lots of juicy freshness. No wine rack is complete without a sprinkling of Merlot magic. And this Western Cape 2021 is a delight. Pair it with grilled meats, cheeses or tomato pasta.
