One of the best Bordeaux-style blends I have had in a long time. #Morgenster #WinesOfSouthAfrica

Sample from #CapeClassics.
Medium ruby red. Layered nose with high intensity not watered down. Definite South African Funk starting off a little stinky, gamey, chalky and ended with some light vegetal notes. Solid cherries carried throughout. Moderate plus tannins (7.5/10) with not much fruit. Full bodied with balanced acidity. Very Bordelaise like withdark red cherries, some savory elements, earthy characteristics like iron and minerality. Very dry and long finish. Beautiful Bordeaux blend from South Africa. Drink till 2024.

Good Bordeaux blend, full bodied with a nice texture and good fruit integrated with a organic earthiness.
