Le Pommier’s “Mac” Cabernet Franc/Malbec blend, pays homage to Mac van der Merwe, previous proprietor of Le Pommier wine farm. Mac was responsible for establishing the magnificent Cabernet Franc and Malbec vineyards on the farm in 2003.
From humble childhood beginnings, Mac was an aspiring businessman, keen rugby player and a young daring street racer, who progressed to become an astute entrepreneur. Mac got his nickname from his only favourite teacher who called him "MacMerwe". The name Mac prevailed. Mac has always been extremely competitive, daring, visionary and passionate about every challenge he took on in life. MAC, the wine, has many similar characteristics. The wine is intense, robust, bold, pleasant, balanced, and worthy company for any occasion.
