A moreish and juicy red-fruited cinsault, a traditional grape which has made something of a comeback here as well as in France.
Award-winning winemaker Duncan Savage produced this wine with the help of friends and contacts in South Africa's Swartland. Liked and admired throughout the industry, he was responsible for putting Cape Point Vineyards, where he still consults, on the vinous map, and for numberous awards. His own labels focus on a variety of grape varieties, producing classic and elegant wines from maritime and high-altitude vineyards with great terroir.
A refreshing counterpoint to an aromatic and mildly-spiced chicken curry. A tomatoey rogan josh would also work splendidly with the sweetness of fruit and gentle tannins in this earthy, peppery red.
What we say:
Very much enjoyed this one. Had it with Red Thai Prawn Curry and went down nicely. Pretty fruity and medium bodied.
