WINE OF THE MONTH

La Bri Merlot 2020

La Bri (L’Abri) is French for “The Haven” – a perfect description of our boutique wine estate nestled in the amphitheatre of the Franschhoek mountains. Here you will find “signature styled wines created with passion” by our winemaker Irene de Fleuriot.

 Merlot 2020

 This Merlot has a rich garnet colour. The nose is a mix of fresh juicy cherry and red plum fruit. A juicy soft, fresh yummy dark chocolate palate with integrated tannins, structured acidity and a long finish

Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel and the wine was then aged for 20 months in predominantly 300Lt French oak barrels. The new wood component is 10%

Each of our wines is linked to a specific flower – the characteristics of the wine are symbolized by the flower on the label.

Amaryllis belladonna (March Lily)

An extremely beautiful and elegant, pink flower that occurs naturally around the Cape. The cultivar Merlot is also seen as being elegant, refined and feminine. The common name belladonna refers to a woman who has both beauty and character – much like our Merlot

Alcohol 13.5 % pH 3.62

We have been creating the finest quality spirits for more than 25 years, and our portfolio offers the highest quality tequila and Mezcal, created in our distilleries, with flawless attention to detail.

We exist to captivate the world through the magic of Mexican culture while transforming ourselves into better human beings. 

Clase Azul Tequila Reposado is our signature creation, as it is the first icon of our portfolio. Its flavour and design are recognized worldwide as a statement of Mexican craftsmanship. 

We maintain and are committed to the highest standards in making our tequila, beginning with the selection of agaves from our fields to the artisanal cooking and milling methods used.

Clase Azul Tequila Reposado is masterfully aged for eight months in American whiskey casks, imparting its unique hazelnut and vanilla flavors and exceptionally smooth finish.
