Porcupine Ridge Merlot 2014 Coastal Region

South Africa

    The label had to be drawn as the photographer couldn't get a picture of the porcupines who live on the estate. We've tracked the wine down though so no need to take pictures. No porcupines were harmed in the making of this wine.

  • Origin

    This wine is made by Boekenhoutskloof, a modern winery in the Franschoek Valley, which planted its first vines in 1993. The area has a cool climate and an abundance of water, making it ideal for growing a wide range of grape varieties.

  • Taste

    Generous flavours of red berry fruit and ripe plums and a soft and supple texture on the palate. The tannins are smooth and complemented by touches of oak.

  • Enjoy

    A great wine to drink with simple red meat dishes such as homemade burgers, beef sausages or pork chops.

Special Distribution

Special distribution

We offer our whole range of fine wines online, including wines stored at our temperature controlled Fine Wine Centre in London. Wines labelled 'Special Distribution' are sent by courier from the Fine Wine Centre to your local Majestic before your delivery can be completed. This allows you to choose from a much greater range, but does mean delivery may take a few days longer than usual.
