Grape - Merlot
Where - Elgin, South Africa
What - These two childhood pals banded together back in late 2019 to form what soon established itself as The Copper Crew. Canned wine is having a bit of a moment and we're stoked to stock these delicious cans on our shelves. They're a step forwards in sustainability and taste frickin' awesome. We've been hankering after a canned South African option for what feels like an eternity, so expect us to keep banging on about this Merlot.
As self-professed Merlot sceptics, we have to admit that there have been several occasions where we have had to eat out words - this is one of them! This is a smooth, fruit-driven red wine that's just summer, summer, summer. It gives an intense hit of blackcurrant before opening up with cola sweets, cacao and ripe red cherry. There's a touch of menthol on the lingering finish. A proper banger.
Great-value, fruity, soft. ABV 13.5%.
