Merlot 2013 Description ...
Stellenbosch district is part of South Africa's Coastal Region with the district some 25 miles east of Cape Town. The Simonsberg Mountain range, part of the cape fold belt, separates Stellenbosch from Paarl district in the north, while the Hottentot Hollands Mountain range separates the district from Walkers Bay in the east. The district is influenced from the cool sea air breezes from both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, with the vineyards planted on rolling hills throughout.
Fairley's Wines Tasting Note ...
The Jordan Estate Merlot appears deep ruby red with an austere of red and black fruit, integrated with cocoa and underlining notes of menthol on the nose. The palate is full with ripe plum, soft with textured oak, finishing seductive and rich with blackberry characters. Allow to breathe 1-2 hours and best served with roast beef and grilled meat.
