The Comeback King Merlot 2019

Robertson WO

This velvety Merlot has been a hit with customers since its first outing in 2014. Made by the talented team at the de Wet family estate, it's a dense yet fruity red with a warm wrap of spice. The last vintage won Gold, and this one is just as good.

This big, all-spice, velvety Merlot is from an estate in Robertson in South Africa’s Western Cape. It's named after Jacobus de Wet, son of the founder of the property (in 1859) and great grandfather of its current owner, Peter de Wet. Jacobus always had a very positive attitude – whenever he encountered a setback he just picked himself up and started again. His biggest financial hiccup was ostrich feathers – his thriving business, supplying plumage to milliners, collapsed due to the advent of cars and streamlined hats. Luckily he'd kept up the estate’s prime vineyards, so niftily turned his focus to winemaking instead. Nowadays, not only do the de Wets make great wine, but they also support many community projects. A top choice with lamb.
