Credit goes to Jancis Robinson for introducing us to this fantastic steal of a Rhone-esque red field blend from South Africa's Swartland. Medium weight with endless layers of wild berries, #pepper, dried #herbs, earth and fine tannins for great food (or without!) versatility.

Nice wine. I say it competes with rhone for the price. Lots of red current and pepper.

South African Rhône Style Blend. (A hefty amount of Cinsault and just a touch of Pinotage is added). Classic Rhône barnyard funk on the nose along with pepper spice and smoke. Ripe current and strawberry fruit on the pallet. Outstanding quality for the price. So well made and extremely versatile. Drink young or let it age a bit. (Like I did with this one). Great with food.
