OUR WINES (archived) - Merlot
Kleine Rust Cellar Selection Red 2006
Nice dark berry flavours and some bitter chocolate notes on the nose. The pallet is soft, sumptuous, juicy and round with elegant tannins and lots of berry fruit.

Stellenrust Simplicity 2006
A unique Merlot based blend complimented with equal parts Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose overwhelmed by smokey Shiraz fruit whereas the palate is dominated by softer Merlot butter flavours and a long finish of moccha on the front palate derived from the Cabernet Sauvignon spending malo in French oak barrels. The nose shows full ripe smokey Shiraz fruit, but on the palate the Merlot and Cabernet is more evident bringing out strong dark berry and chocolate flavours with a tremendously long finish. Even two minutes after the palate has been tested, a strong flavour still exists on the front and mid palate. BUT still made in a style of easy drinking. Which was from the start the mission with this wine, hence the name Simplicity.

Stellenrust Simplicity 2007
The nose shows spicy moccha flavours and some vanilla notes derived from the addition of American oak. The palate is rich and strong, filled with ripe fruit, pepper and hints of violets, cassis and dark chocolate; smoothed with subtle Merlot flavours and vanilla oak. And the name Simplicity?: well, many great things are born from keeping it simple.
