MOSI 2019

R 575.00

Bordeaux Style Blend - Reminiscent of a footpath bordered by Cape Fynbos, the wine unleashes a refreshing fragrance of sun-baked-slate, ripe black fruit and a peppery perfume of lavender and buchu.

On the palate, well-integrated oak and the velvety richness of berry compote-like fruit ensure a rounded texture. Garigue aromas persist with fresh acidity, supple tannins and a lingering aftertaste of dark, sea salt chocolate.

Tasting Notes

Reminiscent of a footpath laced with Cape Fynbos, the wine unleashes a refreshing fragrance born from sun-baked-slate, ripe berry fruit, and a peppery perfume of lavender, and buchu.

The wine is packed with dark fruit like blackberry, mulberry, and plum, with a cool, herbaceous gloss. Hints of rum and raisin positively points to full ripeness, joined by a notable yet balanced alcohol adding to the full, rounded texture of the wine.

Clever use of oak adds structure while honouring the fruit, affirmed with a mellow and gentle pull of berry compote. Garigue aromas persist on the palate, edged with a fresh acidity and supple tannin for a mouth-watering finish.

A coolness lingers on the palate with a gentler aftertaste of dark, sea salt chocolate.
