More Info

Lomond Merlot is a full bodied red wine produced from hand harvested grapes on the Lomond Estate vineyards. Organic principals are employed as much as possible in the production of this South African red wine. The Lomond winemakers believe it is the unique range of soils and the diversity of Merlot vines in their vineyards that sets their Estate Merlot apart.


Lomond Estate Merlot is a complex red wine, full bodied and lush with aromas of ripe mulberry and subtle mint. Sweet plum flavours on the palate with a hint of smokiness from oak ageing. Matured in French oak for 16 months before bottling.

 

The Lomond Wine Estate is situated in Cape Agulhas, an exciting new wine producing region on the southernmost tip of Africa where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet. Their wines are very much in demand worldwide, not surprisingly when you read the list of accolades the winery has been awarded.

 

Their vineyards are farmed under eco-sustainable principals with almost 60% of their land being set aside for conservation. Organic practices are used as much as possible in the production of their wines.
