A ripe, full and delectable South African red blend from one of the country's top estates.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are the two principal grape varieties that go into Claret and in South Africa Bordeaux Blends, such as these, are one of their specialities. This may be one of their entry level wines, but a great deal of care and attention has been taken here. After 18 months in barrel the wine was bottled prior to releasd in 2017. It has aromas of blackcurrant and redcurrant, coffee, tobacco, mocha and a touch of sensual oak. It's a pliant, mid-weight wine with a layered richness and a firm spine of harmonious acidity to its intense berry and spice flavours.
It's a great companion for most foods, including pizzas, pastas and meat or chicken dishes, or simply enjoyed on its own.
