"Less overt definition than their Cabernet Franc – but perhaps that’s often the way with Merlot. Chewy texture, full body. Loads of concentration and excellent freshness from the crisp acid. Another Waterkloof wine that will improve with bottle age.” Jancisrobinson.com
Circumstance Merlot - This is a big full-flavoured style of Merlot. Dense black cassis and bramble fruit aromas combined with plums, spice and a creamy oak on the palate. A fine wine with persistence, complexity and get purity. The wine was matured in barrel for 16 months. Fabulous!
