Day 3 and this has just extended and expanded its wings. As it has evolved over the weekend, notes of butterscotch and raw cane sugar emerge. Such a wonderful expression of the valley, which many can afford to indulge.

If I haven’t mentioned it before, I love these Red Table Wines produced by Sandlands. They’re not fussy and deliver the goods when you need a versatile red wine to pair with a variety of meals. The only trouble is, I can never seem to get my hands on enough of them! Some quick notes over dinner: Popped and poured, bright and fresh bramble fruits on the nose with medium+ intensity. On the palate, a mixed fruits set with blue, black and red fruits all playing nicely together. Medium tannin and medium acid. Finish is also medium. Worked well with chicken wings and corn on the cob. — 2 months ago

Quite a complex nose to this 2018 Biodynamic Syrah from Reyneke, and one that immediately positions this wine some way above its asking price. Blackberry, macerated cherry, fig and smoky bacon steal the show, with singed cigar, black peppercorn and fresh green pepper in the wings.
Deep, inky palate with more than a nod to Cornas, with its savoury flavours of grilled meat and fairly rich profile - this is young, and wants a couple more years in bottle to better integrate. Promising stuff. — 3 months ago
Crisp acidity and not too sweet. Notes of strawberry and raspberry with hints of rosemary and thyme to cut the sweetness. Pairs well with BBQ, chicken wings, or Greek salad. — 3 months ago
Been a long time since I had a Mauriston Zin and I missed it! Yea, there Rockpile is even better but this is excellent. Many may enjoy beer with smoked chicken wings but try this Zin. Flavors melded wonderfully with our two different BBQ ribs, tannins were medium, very smooth for such a young vintage, and the pepper flavors seemed to accent the spices in the food. — 5 months ago
