Received 14% oaking in older French barrels, so essentially the wine offers fruit plus juicy accessibility.
Niel Joubert Merlot
Mixed red berries and cherries at the core with whiffs of dried herbs, white pepper, dusty spice and some dark chocolate. All of which follows through to the palate, ending fresh and lively, but with an attractive streamlined smoothness. Ends savoury, exactly what is required for a food wine.
