The Story

In 1872, a group of young enthusiasts met on Easter weekend to establish Llanelli RFC. The rest as they say is history.



Tasting Notes

Fitting for a 150 year old celebration this blend of Merlot, Mourvèdre and Syrah comprises two of the oldest cultivars, being Syrah and Mourvèdre. This combination of ripe black fruit flavours, peppery and spicy notes of savoury black olives coupled to the great blending qualities of the plummy and raspberry Merlot has created a wine that could be enjoyed now or cellared for 5 years. This wine was grown. made and bottled on the Welbedacht Wine Estate by Springbok rugby player
Schalk Burger.

Food pairing

This wine is the ideal pairing for red meats, any game and venison, as well as spicy foods.


All profits will be donated to the Scarlets Community Foundation and directed towards Grassroots rugby
