Vibrant red colour. Ripe, dark fruit aromas with cloves coming through on the nose. Medium to full bodied with ripe spicy plums and dark cherry fruit flavors. Oak is restrained, but provides structure to back up the ripe flavors.
Blend: 51% Syrah, 16% Carignan, 11% Mourvedre, 11% Souzou, 8% Grenache, 2% Tannat, 1% Petite Sirah
The blend of red varietals represents a fusion of flavors, as does the unique, spicy South African relish from which Chakalaka takes its name.
Great wine, nice dark color, nuanced dark fruit and tea notes. Versatile and a pleasure to drink. Wish I could get more.
