Style: Smooth & Supple

Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 15.4%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Bright ruby red. Aromas of red fruit and violet lead subtle nuances of dark chocolate, licorice and characteristic lead pencil notes also come to the fore. The red berry and mocha flavors are supported by a well-structured, creamy mid palate with fine grainy tannins. The wine shows beautiful elegance with a soft lingering finish.

Blend: 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Shiraz, 8% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"Dense, with charcoal- and savory-tinged grip lending cut while the core of steeped blackberry, black currant and anise notes waits in reserve. The long finish has sinewy tannins that should integrate in the cellar. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot."
92 Points

"Attractive fragrances of mulled berries, cassis and black cherry lead the fruity bouquet of this wine, with added interest from supporting notes of sweet smoke, pepper and licorice root. The mouthfeel is creamy and full, but with ample tannin and acidity to provide structure and lend a gripping texture. Ripe flavors of plum, fig, cassis, black tea and leather flood the palate and linger long on the finish. Drink now–2018. "
91 Points

"Bright ruby-red. Scented, complex nose offers cassis, blueberry, violet and cocoa powder. Suave, spicy and intense, showing lovely cut and penetration to the red and dark berry and spice flavors. Finishes firmly tannic and long, with the structure for a graceful evolution in bottle. This is excellent.
Rating: 91(+?)"

Learn About South Africa

South Africa A long history of growing grapes and making wine, but less of a history on exporting it, and even lesser on the quality aspect. At the turn of the century (1900, that is), a surplus of wine in South Africa created a hierarchy of cooperatives, the biggest and best known being KWV. This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
