Situated on the east and northeast facing slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain, Plaisir de Merle is bordered by the towns of Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl - South Africa's most renowned winemaking areas. The terroir results in grapes of unsurpassed quality and the Plaisir de Merle Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from grapes from a variety of vineyards. Our Winemaker adds small quantities of other Plaisir de Merle reds to achieve a new level of complexity and to increase the accessibility of the wine. The sensuous Cabernet Sauvignon has a rich mouthfeel, with a dry finish and flavours of ripe plummy fruit, dark chocolate and blackberries.
