Klawer Cellars Olifants River Merlot 2012 85 Points

Ruby red with slight purple rim.

Clean, delicately ripe plums, blueberries, mulberries, sandy, good purity of fruit, recognizable as a Merlot, no greenness, brush of neutral oak.

Dry with dash residual sugar, fresh with moderate acidity, salty tang, delicate extract, juicy, savory, uncomplicated good honest offerings, yet have character, perfect now until 2015+
Far better than many Merlot costing twice or three times more!
