130th Anniversary Celebration Madeira Red Blend

Complicated! My first try of Madeira. Mince pie in a glass. If it was like this one, I can see why the founding forefathers drank 50 bottles of Madeira after signing the Declaration of Independence. — 14 days ago

De Toren

Fusion V Stellenbosch Red Blend 2011

Lush, fruit forward. Candied dates, prunes, clove, roasted character on the front. Gives way to a darker smoked meat character. Was the best with the homemade salad dressing consisting of avocado, fresh basil, Greek yogurt, green onion, garlic and parsley. In a way I could see all of these characteristics in this wine. In the past these have seemed a little tight and a bit closed off on the finish, but this wine was ready for the show. I think this producer is really quite underrated when it comes to the time it takes for these to really start expressing and I would put these up against any of the South African 'first growth' wineries. — 11 days ago
