Red blends (other than Classes 17, 18 and 19) () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2020 and older
Luminous maroon with purple centre, brimming with a combination of ripe black plums, red cherry, bramble jam, black and red hedgerow fruits, black olive tapenade, fynbos and undercurrents of crushed coco nib, mint thins and wood spice. The bouquet is slightly shy and tannins, although fine are as yet still grippy, indicating that a few years of careful cellaring or decanting in its youth is advisable.
A perfect partner to hearty country fare – roast rack of spring lamb with roast root vegetables, springbok pie, beef Wellington, char-grilled sirloin with Hollandaise, fine mature cheese and charcuterie or simply enjoyed in good company.
In warmer climes this wine can be enjoyed lightly chilled & decanting is advised.
