In 2004 the Belgian van Almenkerk couple followed their dreams and started a winery in South Africa. In a short time they already produce award winning wines.
The first wine I tasted is the Almenkerk - Merlot 2013 (88 tsomw points)
In the glass a deep garnet color.
On the nose delicious aromas of cherries, raspberries, blackcurrant, licorice and hints of coffee and vanilla.
On the palate a good structure, full in the mouth with enough freshness, nice acidity, soft tannins and a great and long finish.
