Biltong, berries and delicate butter lettuce becomes an interesting salad or side dish with the tones of berries and plums in this red wine. Stonehill Blueberry olives could be added to a simple green salad or serve it as a snack with the wine. Drizzle the salad with olive oil, not to overpower the delicate berry flavours. A mildly spicy dish with cumin flavours will also complement the Merlot.

Recipe: Biltong salad: Arrange butter lettuce with moist biltong slices and some Stonehill Blueberry olives on a salad platter. Drizzle with olive oil and season with freshly ground black pepper. A handful of crispy croutons can add crunch to the salad or serve it with thin slices of melba toast and a generous glass of Alexanderfontein Merlot.

Merlot vines are very generous when bearing fruit and we are always careful not to over crop. This will lead to dilution and loss of colour  intensity.

STYLE:  Fruity Dry Red Wine
