About the wine

A Merlot to make you melt...
  • Who loves Merlot...you do! Well thousands of you do, since Angel investments have enabled this delicious return of a fresh, fruit driven and ever popular red wine from Thomas! Did we mention over 90% of the masses have rated it a huge thumbs-up to buy again?
  • Crafted with serious TLC, the tannin in this wine is balanced with a good spread over the palate and a beautiful lifted nose of cherry ripe characters. Berries on the palate will perfectly accompany your favourite cheese platter or red meat meal.
  • With a few years already in the bottle, this Merlot's characters have already started to develop and soften. It's certainly a wine to treat yourself with or to delight that special red-lover in your life any time!

Best before
enjoy this wine young and is or the next 10 years if you have the will power! which I certainly dont

Serving advice
I would let the 2018 Wiley Rooster Merlot Breathe for a while maybe 30minutes

Food match
everything in a word, very versatile wine that's for sure the 2018 Wiley Rooster Merlot pairs perfectly with and form of meat dish on the BBQ or any form of curry but for our Vegetarian friends a good old Eggplant and chick pea curry!
