absolutely wonderful for the money!
I enjoy meritages / wines that are not one grape. And - especially for the money - this is one of the best I have had. South Africa is probably better known for its white wines but I encourage you to give this one a swirl.
I was pleasantly surprised by this wine. The nose is very different from the taste, which is smooth with dark cherries and an ashy goodness. I bought two more for cellar.
This was good value. Definitely New World which isn't a criticism but a charateristic. Not the wine to buy if you wanted classic Bordeaux.
Initially, I found this wine to be rather thin in the mouth. The nose was light, and without much complexity when it first hit the palate. The second day it really opened up. The fruit was more pronounced and the finish lasted much longer. Not bad for the price, but not a 90pt wine in my humble opinion.
