"The Meifort is usually a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc but on this occasion it is 100% Merlot in a special bottling made for Swig. One of the oldest wineries in the Cape, this is not for the faint-hearted as it tips the scales at 15% but it has enough stuffing cope with it. It is an old-fashioned wine with a heavy saturation of black fruit plus smokiness, which is reminiscent of a Graves wine in Bordeaux. It would be ideal with any hearty dish, including steak or game. Although it is perfectly drinkable now, it will easily last another five or ten years. There is only two barrels of this available, which means less than 50 cases, so don’t delay."
