'Unorthodox' Merlot-Cab. Sauv. 2020

  • Kosher
A blend of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, this red wine has a long skin fermentation with lots of aeration, followed by oak maturation for 8 months in French and American oak. A deep and brilliant ruby red, this wine has tantalizing notes of red fruit and cassis, with a hint of vanilla. Enjoy alongside red meat, stews, and chicken. Pasteurized and prepared under the supervision of Cape Town Beth Din, this wine is Mevushal and Kosher for Passover.

Backsberg Family Wines

The Back family business was founded in 1902 by Charles Louis Back – who came to South Africa as a Jewish refugee from Lithuania. From there it was transferred into the hands of Sydney, followed by Michael and his son Simon. In its 106 years, it has been a mixed farming operation – from fruit to grapes and even livestock – but today the focus is on the wine business. Celebrating four generations of family ownership, and several years of quality winemaking, Backsberg Family Wines continues to thrive by honoring the past whilst simultaneously forging ahead with forward-thinking holistic practices.
