Banrock’s desire to make premium drops at an affordable price is just as important as their belief in the environment and over the years proceeds from their wines have contributed to conservation projects in over 60 countries. This blend is one of the best things you could pair with a dinner of roast lamb. The Merlot’s plum fruit and soft palate weight is complemented by Cabernet’s blackcurrant flavour and tannin structure. Integrated oak holds it all in place while it finishes smoothly and with persistent length.
The Banrock Station Cabernet Merlot displays rich ripe blackcurrant and plum nuances with hints of red cherry and red fruit lift. The lively fruit notes are supported by a very subtle oak influence. This is a medium bodied red wine that exhibits a great balance of ripe fruit character, sweetness and complexity. The blackcurrant, cherry palate is supported by the sweetness of the oak. Coupled with the delicacy of the fruit and oak is an enjoyable acid structure allowing the wine to finish smoothly with lingering flavour.
Food Pairing: Enjoy served with rich, creamy pasta dishes, roast chicken with lemon or blue cheese with a quince paste.
