Downes Mount Bullet Merlot 2016 - 1 bottle left

Tasting Notes

DISCLAIMER: As mentioned, in South Africa this wine is sold under the Shannon Vineyards label, but due to a trademark issue with Shannon Ridge Winery in Napa Valley, we’re obliged to market it in the US under the Downes Family label. You will notice that we’ve had a “Downes Family” sticker applied to the front label, in order to be compliant. (This can be peeled off easily, if you like, once you have received your wine) These are the lengths we go to, in order to bring you great wines like this.

Downes Mout Bullet 2016



5 Stars 2020 Platter’s South African Wine Guide

Dark but radiant, full-fruited & spicy aromas on big (14.5% alcohol) 16 (96 pts) from French & Italian clones. Very serious wine, sumptuous, with great depth of flavour, but also an element of refined austerity. Still far off its best, as was 15 (94 pts) at this early stage.
