We’re drinking… Franschhoek Cellar The Old Museum Merlot 2022

Established in 1954, the Old Museum houses a fascinating journey through the early pioneer life and times in the Franschhoek valley, chronicling intriguing genealogy of the original Huguenot settlers.

This Merlot pays homage to this French ancestry at the heart of the valley. Bright ruby red, with attractive plum and black cherry aromas tinged with herbal tea, liquorice and gentle oak spice, it’s soft and juicy … all mouth-filling summer berry flavours that finish smoothly with sour cherry succulence.

Matured for eight months to a year in French oak, this is an easy social drinking wine, with or without food. If with … lovely with spicy sausages, roast lamb, spaghetti bolognaise, pizza, or cottage pie.

Around R100 a bottle from your local wine store on online from shop.Details: franschhoekcellar.co.za
