“The Fat Bastard Merlot story is one of friendship and passion for the wine industry. It was when Guy came to sample Thierry’s recent vintage that the range was born. Originally, the wine was only for experimentation, but when the pair tasted it together, they knew they had something special. Thierry’s reaction of the wine – ‘now zat iz what you call eh phet bast-ard’ – birthed the name of the wine. If you’d like to read more about the pair’s journey, click here.
Deep, dark red in colour with wonderfully aromatic aromas. The Fat Bastard Merlot has hints of blackberry, plum, and cedar elegant notes with finishes of plum and black cherry. The wine itself has a ripe and juicy taste while remaining delicate. It’s an easy drinking wine with cheerful fruity tones and a long finish.
The Fat Bastard Merlot is best enjoyed with roasted chicken or semi-soft and herbed cheese.”
