Made from grown grapes in the Stellenbosch, Paarl and Elgin regions, this wine is created to show the fresh, fruity and spice driven flavors of these Rhone varietals. The color is youthful and purple/red. The nose is one of crushed black pepper, dark mulberry and mixed berry coulis.
"The 2011 The Pepper Pot is a blend of 51% Syrah, 24% Mourvedre complemented by Cinsault, Garnacha, Tannat and Viognier. It has a lovely ripe blackberry, white pepper and rosemary scented bouquet that is well defined and natural. The palate is well balanced with supple ripe red fruit that is silky smooth in texture. It has very good weight with a sweet, pastille-like finish that is fresh and alluring. Excellent."
