Name: Overgaauw Merlot
Country: South Africa
The Overgaauw Merlot was the first varietal Merlot bottled in South Africa. David van Velden selects certain pockets within the vineyard showing great fruit concentration reflecting the uniqueness of Overgaauw’s Merlot. It is a well structured, medium bodied wine with a rich combination of sumptuous black cherry fruit, hints of dark mocha chocolate and elegant spicy oak notes from the 18 months in French oak barrels. Smooth tannins ensure a lingering, full complexity.
