Stellar Merlot No Added Sulphur
Deep, bright colour and ripe fruit on the nose. Hints of jasmine and dark perfume. The wine has well-structured tannins from a post-ferment maceration. There is no wood influence, only ripe organic Merlot grapes. There is no sulphur added to this delicious wine, and we call this a low sulphur wine because in tests, ‘normal’ wines can have as much as 200 parts per million and this tested with just 5 parts per million.

Stellar Winery is situated 275 kilometres north of Cape Town on the road to Namibia. It is a joint venture between four farmers and the cellar. The cellar processes about 900 tonnes of organic grapes from farms straddling the northern boundary of the Olifants river wine region and Namaqualand. Working closely with the farms, winemaker Dudley Wilson (ex-Flagstone), produces a great range of wines.
