South Africa: Stone Town Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
Stone Town brims with a magical jumble of life, with flavours sailing out from the cobbled alleyways to bustling bazaars selling spices and roasted coffee. Inspired by this rich, fragrant culture, our voyage for the most elegant and flavourful maritime grape varieties has transported us to the cooler regions of the Cape. While the Merlot enjoys the crisp Atlantic breeze just a few kilometres from the coast, the Cabernet Sauvignon thrives along the lush mountainous slopes.

Deep garnet in colour. The nose shows classic notes of blackcurrant, violets and hints of cigar box. The palate is medium bodied, with flavours of cranberries and plums with subtle oak spice, finishing with refined tannins.
