Anthonij Rupert Protea Merlot 2018

The Protea is the national flower of South Africa, cherished for its beauty and diversity. With the Protea range of wines Anthonij Rupert express this extraordinary miscellany in their varietal character and distinctive flavours. The unique bottles have been designed with an environmentally friendly ethos; Re-Use, Re-Cycle and really make a difference. The bottles can be up-cycled and re-used and the labels are printed on 100% re-cycled material. Bright blue and black berry fruit aromas with a light leafy brush and cocoa nuances. In the mouth the wine is immediately fruity, supple, soft and rounded with abundant juiciness. The rich, dark berries come through, along with the gentle spice and cocoa notes. The texture or mouthfeel is plush and velvety which makes this a very appealing, drinkable wine. Good pliable structure and length of flavour.
