Wine tasting note: 1996 Von Ortloff Merlot

1996 Von Ortloff Merlot

1st Aug 1999 GBP7 South Africa Table Red

Even garnet red with a touch of brown at the rim - maturing.
A developed, alcoholic nose with sugar almonds and a touch of old oak.
Quite full bodied with lovely developed flavours of cassis, tobacco, and green leaf. Juicy and crisp with a lingering finish.
Good value.
