I feel like somehow I’ve missed the boat and everyone else loves this a lot more than I do. 🤷‍♂️

My first South African wine!!
2012 5 way blend of 70 Syrah, 13 CS, 10 Grenache Noir, 6 Cinsault, 1 Viognier.
Big, just kept evolving for hours.

Not for me. Sweet edge and very fruit forward. Sorry!

Lush, concentrated. Berry-soaked cocoa powder aromas that only intensify on the tongue, leaving with a lingering lingonberry finish. I could drink it every day!

There's no doubt that this is a good wine. Lots of interest. But not convinced that it's worth £22. Probably 50% overpriced.
