Press Recommendations:"A wine that does what it says on the tin… or the label in this case. Organic with a Fair Trade certification and no added sulphites, this is a vegan-friendly merlot from the Western Cape that’s chock full of plum, cherry and red berry flavours with notes of spice and pepper. One to enjoy with a veggie pasta dish." - John Clarke, The Independent, 24 January 2019
