If experience matters in winemaking, Wamakersvallei, the South African winery that makes the Bain’s Way range, certainly gets points in that category. They’ve been making wines in South Africa’s Wellington region, a leading appellation in South Africa, for over a century, even before the fall of apartheid sparked a renaissance in South African wine around the world. They even helped pioneer the re-emergence of the country into the wine scene globally.
Their Merlot is a brilliant example of this winery’s capabilities, making stunning wine that truly expresses the natural characteristics of Wellington and astonishing with its masterful winemaking that results in fresh, yet complex wines.
Ripe cherry fruit flavors lead on the palate of this versatile and food friendly Merlot. Light oak notes also present on the palate which finishes with notes of plum and a hint of chocolate. A beautiful wine that will be pair with most meals but especially well with beef dishes.
