The nose of this wine tells the story of how it was made. Raspberry (Merlot), a slight herbaciousness (Cabernet Franc) and English toffee (oak) combine in a harmonious way. Malbec and Petit Verdot provide colour and spice. Very perfumy and aromatic with the earthiness of beetroot and leafy undergrowth. Juicy, concentrated blueberry fruit on palate with fresh acidity and toffee sweetness. Spicy cinnamon finish.
This South African interpretation of the famous Bordeaux-style red blend is excellent at countering fat - creamy, buttery or otherwise fat-laden dishes such as duck-liver are excellent partners. Its accommodating structure befriends mild curries such as the traditional Cape bobotie and it is a stalwart with creamy sauces and mushrooms. Also responds very well to red meats, game, roasts and noble, matured cheese.
