KWV Merlot is bursting with raspberry and blackberry and just a hint of marzipan. It’s velvety and medium-bodied.
The KWV Merlot is best enjoyed on its own or with red meat, chicken and pasta dishes.
KWV, or Ko-operatieve Wijnbouwers Vereniging van Zuid Afrika, was registered all the way back in 1918. It took them only 8 years to produce the first brandy in 1926, which was exported to the UK. Even though KWV’s journey hasn’t always been an easy one – having to face decreased sales due to the war etc. – the company celebrated their 60th anniversary in 2006. They did this by launching their Diamond Jubilee Brandy (a blend of 10, 12, 15 and 23-year-old brandies).
