Give OBiKWA Merlot a whirl

Issued by GC Communications  On behalf of Distell

When friends come knocking, bring out the OBiKWA Merlot and enjoy this fruity, easy drinking red with a quick, no fuss meal. With a different variety for every day of the week, you are spoilt for choice with the range of quality, pocket friendly OBiKWA wines.

"OBiKWA Merlot is a medium bodied wine, jam-packed with fruit flavours and spicy vanilla,” says OBiKWA Cellarmaster, Michael Bucholz, who recommends serving this wine with a homemade balsamic onion, brie and bacon pizza.

“When guests drop in unexpectedly, this pizza is a lifesaver. Open a bottle of OBiKWA Merlot, place a ready-to-go pizza base, bacon and Brie cheese on the table. Continue by caramelising two handfuls of onions in butter and a dash of balsamic vinegar. It will smell so good someone else might get the hint and finish the cooking!” laughs Michael.

With the delegation out of the way, whoever takes over only needs to arrange the onions, slices of Brie and fried bacon on the base and to pop it into the oven for about six minutes before serving. 

Life is an adventure, so go on share it with good friends and good wine. OBiKWA Merlot sells at around R30 per bottle. The OBiKWA range of varietal wines is available at leading outlets country-wide.
