  • Excelsior Merlot South Africa

    Like its white cousin, this is a great party wine and goes well with most foods or just on its own. Rich, juicy Merlot from a favourite Estate of ours. Much recommended by Real Wine Co customers.  45% of the blend was aged in french and american oak barrels for six months. The wine is exceptionally concentrated and fruity.

  • Château Lamothe-Vincent Bordeaux “Intense” Merlot

    Gold Medals at Brussels, Lyon and Gilbert & Gaillard.

    The classic Bordeaux blend, of course, is Cabernet/Merlot, and here we have a classic indeed. However, it’s Merlot dominated but with a rare 30% Cabernet Franc. Rich and very well-structured fruit.

  • Chateau Lamothe-Vincent Bordeaux Superieur Heritage Red

    Gold Medal at Bordeaux

    The classic Bordeaux blend, of course, is Cabernet/Merlot, and here we have a classic indeed, but with 80% Merlot. Very St-Emilion-esque! Multiple-Gold-Medal winner, this “Heritage” cuvee has been aged in French oak barrels for 12 months and is quite simply as typical a claret as you could wish for at a very affordable price.

  • Excelsior Gondolier Merlot

    This Merlot pays homage to Gondolier, one of the most renowned thoroughbred racehorses bred at Excelsior. Six months after receiving extensive physiotherapy on an injury to his hind leg that had left him completely lame, Gondolier won the 1985 Durban July, South Africa’s most prestigious horse race. Today Gondolier is regarded as one of the legends of South African horse racing.

    This Merlot comes from vines planted on calcareous soils and represent the best Merlot produced on Excelsior.

    Deep ruby red colour with a black core. This wine is medium to full-bodied with aromas of blackcurrants, chocolate and earth. The wine has rich but exceptionally soft tannins and a long finish.
