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.
Merlot produces medium bodied, fleshy, juicy wines with round tannins. Often seen as a single varietal, or in a blend with Cabernet Sauvignon to take the hard edges off. Its grown all over the world and commercially one of the most important red grapes in the on-trade.
A whole generation of enthusiastic, young winemakers are crafting amazing wines on incredible sites whilst putting sustainability high on their agenda, making the South African wine industry progressive and exciting.Explore South Africa
