Description

Franschhoek Cellar is a beautiful estate on the Franschhoek Valley wine route of South Africa, and is home to an exquisite range of award-winning wines created to fully complement their cuisine. The Old Museum is their Merlot offering using grapes hand harvested in February from vines aged between 8 to 26 years. Regular pump-overs and punch downs during fermentation, followed by 8 to 12 months in French oak.

Bright ruby red with attractive plum and black cherry aromas tinged with herbal tea, liquorice and gentle oak spice. Soft and juicy on the palate with mouth-filling summer berry flavours that finish smoothly with sour cherry succulence. Recommended with spicy sausage, roast lamb, spaghetti bolognese, pizza or cottage pie.
