Production

This red is made from a blend of Shiraz, Petit Verdot and Cinsault grapes from the Swartland area where the powerful South African sunshine makes sure these reach their utmost and optimum ripeness. All grapes are picked by hand, softly crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The result is a lively wine with a juicy, creamy finish that combines well with food or simply enjoyed on its own.

Tasting notes

A blend of classic South African grape varieties - the notion of 'droë rooi' (dry red) in SA is traditional, well known and long established. In other markets, non-varietal red blends often meet with resistance but this is to miss out on some AMAZINGLY great value wines. Really juicy, accessible, soft, bright red. LEKKER!! A nose of pure crushed fresh raspberries with that Swartland sandy element complete with a palate of summer berries, cream and dark spice in the finish.

Food match

A fantastic match to a huge variety of dishes from steak and chips, bangers and mash, juicy pink sunday roast, to beef stirfry or fresh summer salads.
