A blend of 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 21% Pinotage and 13% Shiraz.
Each component of this Cape blend offers its own qualities. This vintage shows an explosion of fruit on the nose which is largely attributable to the Cabernet sauvignon and Pinotage components. The Pinotage is soft and sweet while the Merlot and Shiraz offers a subtle spiciness. The Cabernet Sauvignon is the backbone of the blend. Ripe tannins with an innate softness that will mature with cellaring. Full on the palate with a sweetness on the finish. This blend brings the best of Pinotage to the classic French varieties.
Food recommendations: Serve with a spicy tomato stew made with sun-ripened tomatoes or black mushroom risotto.
