@Delectable Wine this is the 2009 Graham Beck Cape Winemakers Guild Cuvée 105 ‘MGA’ Zero Dosage Pinot Noir Chardonnay Cap Classique. Yup that’s a mouthful.

Medium yellow in appearance with moderate liveliness. A bit stinky in the nose with some animal nuances, baked yeast, dirty cellar and a bit of minerality. Moderate acidity (6/10) with a light plus to medium body. A little tart on the palate with some Granny Smith apples and white gravel. Long finish. Drink till 2023.

Very interesting #merlot from #stellenbosch #southafrica i didn’t particularly like it the first time I tasted it with Coravin, but today I opened it with a stew with red peppers and it was heaven. Highly recommendable with stews and game. — 2 months ago

Interesting wine from #southafricanwine #southafrica but #pinotage is an invader grape and it permiates through this blend too much in my opinion. And yet interesting invention and has freshness and texture — 8 months ago
