Dudley's Stone - Cabernet Merlot is a tasty, low-calorie merlot packed with delicious fruity flavours balanced with subtle spicy aromas. This South African red is of great value and excellent quality and is sure to make an impression on any occasion.
This delicious wine's name is inspired by the history of the region in which it is produced. Discovered in 1869, the ‘Star of South Africa’ was the first large diamond found in the country. On hearing of the stone, the Earl of Dudley purchased it, had it mounted on a head ornament with 95 smaller diamonds and gave it to the countess of Dudley – it was hence known as the ‘Dudley Diamond’.
