Description

Winemaker’s Comments

Colour: Deep ruby with youthful purple trim.

 

Bouquet: Complex coming together of red cherries, dark, ripe plums and shrivelled prunes with fruit cake-like cinnamon, cardamom and cloves. In the background, hints of mint, white pepper and earthy nuts add to the overall appeal.

 

Taste: Medium-full in structure, the wine is friendly and supple with gentle, though ample tannins, a sweet, rounding fullness with an elegantly-dry finish.

 

Ageing Potential: Possibly best at an age of around three to five years, but should last well into double digits with some respectful cellaring.

 

Food Pairing: This food-friendly, versatile wine will best complement succulent game burgers with camembert and cherry-compote toppings; biltong pizzas with blue cheese and caramelized onions. Wholesome Sheppard’s pie and traditional Bobotie will also be winners.
