Veenwouden is a Boutique Winery situated on the northern side of Paarl with sweeping views of the Klein Drakenstein Mountains. Once a family affair, Deon Van der Walt was the owner at the time, Switzerland-based tenor, whilst brother Marcel was the winemaker and previously a professional golfer.

These wines emerged from no-where to capture international attention and are some of the most consistent vintage wines found in SA. The Veenwouden wines are all in immaculate condition today and show a modernity that few SA wines achieved at the time. Truly special and extremely rare.

This lot consists of the following wines:
Veenwouden Merlot 1995 (2 x 750ml)

1995
‘An inviting Merlot, whose mellow cherry and plum flavors are accented with cedar and mint. It has firm but smooth tannins and a light, mature character.’ - Wine Spectator
