Main Divide Merlot Cabernet


… Plush on entry, intense and mouth-filling with red fruits and fruitcake; a hint of "Bordeaux'' … Mellow, rounded and rather tasty

… Cabernet gives the wine class while merlot makes it mellow.  A great partnership …

The nose is complete and quite complex with juicy blueberry, violet, mint and earthy aromas that lead through a fleshy palate of good flow and persistence.  Almost European-like, this very moreish drop is another winner from the talented husband-and-wife winemaking team at Pegasus Bay.”

The Main Divide label has proven to be the runaway success for the Donaldson family.  The fruit is backed by supple tannins in the background and good acid freshness providing sufficient palate drive and line for an attractively sweet fruited, lengthy finish. This is an elegant, fresh and supple Merlot-based wine.”
