Hoopenburg Merlot 2000
The wine's youth and accessibility come through in a brilliant, deep ruby colour, introducing a style that is medium-bodied. Yet the wine has a great strength of character: distinctive varietal roasted coffee beans, chocolate and rich, ripe fruit, with a hint of herbaceousness on the nose and palate. Bold, but accessible. Enjoy with Potroast Guineafowl.

Hoopenburg Merlot 1999 - Winemakers Selection
Ruby in colour, this medium-bodied wine has herbaceous, herbal scents mixed with fresh, tart redberry fruit aromas. Firm acidity and spicy wood flavours on a sweet fruit base and a dry finish recommend a partnership with food. Try with traditional South African Frikkadelle and Roast Quail with a berry sauce.

Hoopenburg Merlot 2001
Veritas 2003 - Bronze
Bright ruby red in colour, this Merlot has ripe red berry fruit aromas. The palate is tasty, slightly spicy, with wome deliciously sweet oak vanillins coming through. A medium-bodied wine, though its fairly high alcohol and firm, dry tannins will stand up to strongly flavoured dishes and probably do well with anything, even chilli.
