PRICE PER BOTTLE
At Epicurean, each year's blend differs as a function of climate and available Cape Winelands grapes. And for 2011, it was the turn of Merlot to shine. This resulted in a rich, robust wine that impresses with dense, intense fruity flavours and pairs well with savoury dishes, particularly red meat.
The wine boasts a powerful tannic structure with a bone-dry finish that is underpinned by a generous black plum taste and aftertaste. The nose shows red and black fruit, a subtle leafiness, and oyster shell. The palate is medium- to full-bodied with fresh acidity and sleek tannins.
