Western Cape, South Africa

Tasting Notes

Soft tannins with an orchestra of blackberries give an indication of wood displaying a smoky, spicy nose. The wine is not for aging as the acidity has been lowered in the cellar allowing the wine to become “sessionable” and extremely smooth contrary to the usual “chalky” expectations. Look for the “pencil box” notes on the nose and the distinctive “green bell pepper”.
