About the Wine

This terrific red wine produced by Fish Hoek originates from the Western Cape. Available in 75cl bottles, supplied by Accolade wines. Fish Hoek Fairtrade Merlot is an inspired wine, made with Chenin Blanc and Pinotage grapes. This screwcap wine is made with added-sulphites. A great all-rounder, as good with Mediterranean dishes as with spicy food or a Sunday roast.
