Remhoogte Sir Thomas Cullinan
R374.00 Inc VAT
Wow!! I was forced to eat my words here, during the tasting I mentioned to Rob I’m not a big merlot fan. I wrote one word when I first tasted this wine, BEST!!!.
This blend is 70% merlot 30% cabernet highlighting why merlot is the flagship grape of Remhoogte. It’s also the only wine on the range that gets a fair amount of new oak, about 60%.
I got lots of dark fruit in this wine especially plums and blackberries.
This wine was really a treat to taste and I can’t believe I have never tasted it before. This is up there with some of the best Bordeaux styled wines I’ve tried in South Africa, especially in the last year or two.
