Rebel Wine Merlot With CBD
This charming Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon blend is infused with natural CBD, derived from Organic Hemp grown in Colorado. The nose is bursting with cheerful berry fruit and a hint of peppery spiciness, gained from 12 months maturing in oak. These flavours follow through to a mouth-filling, plummy palate.
Please be aware, this is a natural product, so may be slightly cloudy.
The “Rebel” story began in Zimbabwe in the early 90’s, when demand for wine far exceeded supply. Rupert St Aubyn, Chief Rebel, worked there as a commercial pilot, so bringing a steady supply of delicious South African wine into Zimbabwe was pretty straight-forward. Sales were so good, that, on return to the UK in 2005, a wine business was the only sensible option. Southern Wines was born then, with Rebel Wine as the latest addition to the portfolio, concentrating on unique products, which mainstream wine fans may not always be aware of. Rebel’s motto is “If you follow all the rules, you miss all the fun!”, and this is exemplified in the bold, delicious flavours of Rebel Wine.
