    Le Bonheur Merlot 2020

    Elevation, old vineyards and very special soils have all contributed to Le Bonheur’s reputation as a leader of Stellenbosch Merlot and Merlot-based blends. The Le Bonheur Merlot is smooth, elegant and delightfully pleasing.

    Appearance : Dark ruby red.
    Nose : Elegant notes of ripe cherries, blackcurrant and cedarwood, with subtle hints of potpourri and dark chocolate.
    Palate : Medium-bodied with supple and fine tannins. This pleasingly smooth red wine presents generous fruit, silky texture and a fine balance. 

    The 2020 vintage is considered as a highlight of the decade. With sufficient water,
    moderate temperatures and healthy, but balanced vigour, it was a vintage that
    delivered grapes with high natural acidity and concentrated flavours. The vintage
    was also characterised with very strong winds, however, vineyards on the
    Simonsberg slopes did not suffer any damage and benefitted from cooling of the
    bunch zones.
