Rustenberg John X Merriman 2013 Stellenbosch

South Africa

    This wine takes the classic Bordeaux blend and gives it a South African edge. It is rich and smooth and very much fruit driven. I always like to take this wine back to my family for Sunday lunch.

    The name commemorates John Xavier Merriman (1841 - 1926), who purchased a farm in 1892 which later became Rustenberg Wines. He was the last Prime Minister of the Cape Colony before the formation of the Union of South Africa in 1910.

  • Taste

    Intense blackberry, blackcurrant, undertones of mint, spice and cigar box on the nose. On the palate are plenty of blackcurrant and cassis, fresh mint, subtle oak and soft tannins.

We offer our whole range of fine wines online, including wines stored at our temperature controlled Fine Wine Centre in London.
