Bergkelder

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 Series Privée Merlot Unfiltered

Fleur du Cap Series Privée Merlot is a complex wine that has a deep dark inky colour. Concentrated aromas of Christmas cake, blueberry and violets with hints of cassis. Subtle nuances of lead pencil and oak notes, give an indication of the sophisticated oak used. Full and complex flavours of black current and mocha arise of the palate with integrated oaking adding firm tannins that will ensure longevity.

Wine - Food pairing

This complex wine is the ideal accompaniment to fillet of beef and roast lamb but goes equally well with rich, robust dishes and strong flavoured cheeses.
