Fleur du Cap wines were first launched in 1968, shortly after the opening of Die Bergkelder, the famous mountain cellar which cuts deep into the Papegaaiberg in Stellenbosch. Built by Dr. Anton Rupert, it was the first underground bottle maturation cellar of its kind in the southern hemisphere. Die Bergkelder distinguished itself as an important innovator in the wine industry. In the 1970s, the team played a pivotal role in establishing classic noble grape varieties in the vineyards of the Cape and introduced the maturation of quality wine in small casks of new French oak. The launch in 1998 of the top tier Fleur du Cap Unfiltered range is a testament to this pioneering legacy.

Fleur du Cap Essence du Cap Merlot 

Fleur du Cap Essence du Cap Merlot is a  full-bodied ruby red colored red wine that has aromas of dark mint chocolate and plums, underlined by elegant wood spices. On the palate this well-balanced wine is velvety soft yet mouth filling with clean soft fruit and a touch of underlying oak. These complex flavours linger on the finish.

Wine - Food pairing

This wine is the perfect partner to spicy Mediterranean food, full-flavoured fish, duck or guinea fowl
