Description: This is a quite a complex red blend from Stellenbosch in South Africa.
These vineyards are surrounded by spectacular mountains overlooking False Bay – sea breezes and fresh air cool down summer temperatures by up to five degrees Celsius. Rainfall figures can be high and an eager South Easter breeze indicates a traditional European-type Terroir.
Tasting Note: Bold, rich, spicy fig and apricot fruit fills out the palate, giving this an unctuous mouthfeel, joined by spicy, toasty oak”
Food Matches: A wine to be enjoyed with everyday home-style dishes from meat on the barbeque to more hearty stews and pasta.
