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

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

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

Dark berry and stewed fruit aromas fuse with spicy pepper flavors which compliment the full bodied ripe tannins. This blend brings the best of Pinotage to the classic French varieties and will age well for the next 15 years.

Serve with a spicy tomato stew made with sun ripened tomatoes or a black mushroom risotto.

Critical Acclaim

"This gorgeous Cape blend, made from 30% Pinotage, 31% Syrah, 30% Cab Sauv and 3% Mourvedre, is ripe and immediately snticing on the nose with aromas of crushed Thin Mint cookies and iris petals mingled perfectly with the blackberry, blueberry and fig fruit core. Wel balanced and firmly structured with a spicy, lingering finish."

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...
