Duque de Montebello Jumilla Tinto, Monastrell, PDO, süß
In the glass, a deep dark colour and pronounced aromas of red fruits such as cherries and raspberries, followed by darker fruits such as plums, mulberries and blueberries, as well as a spicy note of white pepper are convincing. Smoky notes and aromas of dark chocolate are found on the nose. The wine has a full-bodied tannin structure that coats the entire palate and is elegantly supported by the use of the oak barrels.

A full-bodied red wine with pronounced aromas of red fruits such as cherries and raspberries
The Meerendal Heritage Reserve consists of 4 grape varieties: Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinotage. The grapes were hand-picked from selected vineyards to produce this particularly expressive, elegant and complex wine. Fermentation took place in traditional 5-tonne fermenters. The racking is done by hand 6 times a day. The wine is then matured for 14 months in French oak barrels.
This wine is a versatile companion. Roasted red meat with herb crust, ribeye steaks, charcuterie sausages and smoked meats go well with it.
Only about 30 km north-east of Cape Town, the tradition of the Meerendal wine estate began as early as 1702, when Governor Willem Adriaan van der Stel, son of Constantia founder Simon van der Stel, handed over the land, which was fertile but hardly used at the time, to Jan Meerland. When he died at sea in 1706, his widow Christina Stans took up viticulture and ten years later had already cultivated 60,000 vines. Gradually, more and more wheat fields were planted with vines. Even today, they still adhere to the preferred viticulture method of the time, the so-called bush training, in which the arrangement of the vines in even rows ensures that the available soil is used in the best possible way. Due to their low height, the sunlight reaches all the vines in the same way and with the same intensity, without them shading each other.
