This wine is deliciously different, and is made in South Africa, using Portugal's most prized grape. Full-bodied, perfumed with violets, tasting of dense ripe black fruit, with wonderful chocolate notes on the finish.
From Richard Kelley MW “The Liberator”. Over the past 20 years, Richard Kelley has become one of the most respected authorities on South African wines. Between 1995 and 2005, he lived and worked in the Cape, witnessing the renaissance of the post apartheid wine industry. Throughout this time, he established a healthy rapport with the great and the good of the local wine scene, affording him access to their distinguished cellars. Along the way he started to discover small parcels of wine and engaged some of the finest Cape winemakers in project work with him. You might say he became a “Cape Crusader”.
Food match: Enjoy with rich autumnal or winter meat dishes, like slow-cooked featherblade beef.
