The 2019 De Grendel Merlot was named Best Merlot in the Winemag Prescient Top 20 Wines South Africa 2021 Report.
'Matured for 13 months in French oak barrels, one-third new. Red and black berries, crushed herbs, oystershell and earth on the nose. The palate is full bodied but balanced – concentrated fruit, fresh acidity and fine tannins. Shows great focus.' – Winemag Prescient Top 20 Wines South Africa 2021 Report, Best Merlot (92/100)

'Smooth, rounded 2019 has a creamy cherry dipped in chocolate character, gentle spice & medium body. Dabs petit verdot & cab franc, 13 months in 33% new oak add to structure & herbal perfume. Cape Town WO.' – Platter's Guide, 4*

'Beautiful deep ruby colour with a purple rim. The nose presents a bouquet of blackberries, black cherries and mocha which follows through to a velvety-smooth palate with finelyintegrated tannins. Wellrounded with a lingering cedarwood finish.' – Winemaker

Producer information The De Grendel farm, situated on the slopes of Tygerberg Hill, dates back to 1720 with the first owner, businessman Claas Meyboom. In 1891, Dawie Graaff, the mayor of Cape Town, bought De Grendel farm, and it has been in the Graaff family ever since. The first De Grendel wines were made in 2003 from the Graham Beck cellars, and in 2004, De Grendel opened their own wine cellars. With their 330 hectares of land, the Graaff family has a respect for nature and the environment. De Grendel is a member of the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative (BWI), is a carbon-negative farm, uses solar energy and follows water wise principles. In addition to wine farming the estate also does dairy farming.
