Tasting Notes

Opaque centre with lighter brick red edges, young and vibrant redStarts out more herbaceous with lavender and thyme in the lead Cabernet franc much more predominant with some whiffs of coffee Then comes the cassis, raspberry and perfumey rose petals Elegant and accessible entry, fullness is a given A seamlessly put together palate Beautiful balance of fruit, wood and acidity

This blend is typically South African: friendly, inviting and accessible. Given the nature of South Africans, they like anything over a fire. So my ideal would be to pair it with roasted lamb cutlets and greens, or a lemon and herb chicken with mielie pap and smoor.

Full bodied, black pepper and red fruit, great smooth tannins, gentle fruit and fantastic long mint finish.

Almost 5 stars! Beautiful South African red blend, spicy, punchy, chewy and really pleasant. Oaky, vanilla, some leather.

This wine was delicious! Red fruit, pencil lead, meaty, leather, herbaceous edge. Well rounded palate, long finish!

Gorgeous, silky wine. So much fresh fruit, even though the wine is 15 years old. Brambles, plums with savoury flavours and earthy undertones. Forest floor nose, with a hint of eucalyptus. Perfectly integrated tannins. Lively long length. Who says SA wine doesn’t age!

Unique, complex and slightly odd nose of cured meat, old shoes, moist earth and leaves. Berry and cherry undertones. On the palate its earthy, slightly spicy with liquorice and dried fruit flavours. Silky texture. Nicely balanced. Decanted it for 1.5 hours before diving in but I reckon it would continue to develop beyond 2-3 hours. Throughly enjoyable South African Bordeaux blend. Might be my favourite so far.
