Jan Fiskaal (fiscal shrike) is a small bird with a fierce reputation for driving out pests in the vineyards.
This merlot expresses pure red cherries and fresh strawberry aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, just a light brushing of cocoa here, with a nicely composed, quite elegant finish.

This medium-bodied wine will be wonderful just by itself or paired with roast chicken, lamb stew, lasagne and BBQ's.
Serve at a cool room temperature.
