Sommelier Amanda Mthembu and Eamonn Dowling from Tops@Lifestyle

Amanda and Eamonn present Eagles Nest 2016 Merlot - This wine exhibits intense flavours of dark berries and spice, with an underlying hint of mocha and tobacco aromas. Meticulous attention in the vineyard and cellar combine to produce a wine with textured fruit purity and tantalizingly firm yet balanced tannins. As with all Eagles’ Nest red’s there is a subtle peppery savouriness that makes this wine both distinctive and gives testament to its origin on a cool wind- swept mountainside. The palate is a satisfying combination of perfectly ripe berry fruit, subtle spice, with a persistent mouthfeel. This wine is ready to drink now but will benefit from correct cellaring until 2030.
