Product Details

Tasting Notes

Made from four fantastic grape varieties - Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot - sourced from top South African wine region, Stellenbosch.

Ripe and concentrated with blackcurrant and black cherry flavours.

There's spice too, quite a combination! Super with slow-cooked stews.

Storage Instructions

This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 3 years

Expert Opinion

In the press...

A typical Bordeaux-style blend of two thirds Cabernet Sauvignon along with a third Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this is an appealing Cape red with some attractively leafy blackcurrant and mulberry juiciness, nicely framed by vanilla oak in an almost surprisingly traditional style that should appeal to claret-loving Tesco shoppers.

The Wine Gang - thewinegang.com 01/01/2013

Of the 2010 vintage, Anthony Rose said: "Smoky with a touch of fragrant leafiness, this appealing red combine's blackcurrant and mulberry juiciness with vanilla oak spice in a Cape meets Rioja style."
