This certified organic, Fair Trade and vegan red is a blend of South Africa's (often unfairly maligned) Pinotage variety and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Earthy and meaty, this blend offers up aromas of spice, bacon fat, iodine, wild forest berries, cocoa and plummy undertones. The palate offers good substance with savoury salty flavours, wild fruits, licorice and cocoa. Textural tannins add chew, it has good substance and a juicy finish.
A good everyday dinner wine with roasted meats, game, hard cheeses, hearty bean casseroles.
New review: August 2017
Attractively scented with black raspberry, cocoa, black currents, vanilla and sweet spice, atop a more savoury core f tar, grilled bell peppers and leather. The palate is supple with very good fruit expression; it is juicy, slightly textural and has solid structure. Overall, good value!
