Another stunning wine by Cathrine Marshall made from Elgin grapes. Plush, ripe, purple fruit flavours and aromatics are supported by vibrant, fresh acidity to balance opulently textured mid-core palate weight. We recommend you enjoy this with the best cut of beef; bolognaise type pastas, char-grilled meat and chunky casseroles.
Black Forest 2010 is a blend made from Merlot (85%) and Shiraz (15%) sourced from the Stellenbosch region. Vinified separately the wine was transferred to French Oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and finally aged in barrel for a total of 16 months before blending and bottling.
The wine offers sumptuous, brooding, dark-toned berry fruit aromas with flavours of bursting mulberry fruit, showcased with spicy white peppery whiffs. Enjoy with a good fillet of beef or a rich mushroom based pasta dish. Read more about this wine.
Deep ruby mulberry colour and immense bouquet with scents reminiscent of blackcurrants, red berries, spice and cigar box. A wine of ample structure fills the mouth with concentrated fruit and berry sensations.
A five-varietal Bordeaux-style wine with balanced fruit and oak. Generous length, rounded tannins, medium body, distinct intensity, supple consistency, round structure, dry finish and harmonious balance. This wine, with its youthful tannins and weighted body, will go well with less chewy meat such as moist biltong; beef hamburgers; cheddar cheese or equally weighted medium mature cheese.
The Ida’s Red 2011 is Merlot based with added components of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Flavours of dark soft berries with hints of spicy chocolate the wine is firm but supple on the finish.
Deep Persian Carpet Red. A refined tapestry of violets, blackberries and cherries with a tobacco lining. The sweet chocolate sensation moulds the palate, releasing delicate blueberry notes. The silky smooth tannins transforms the four unique cultivars into a harmonious Bordeaux blend.
Aromas of spice and cassis dominate when the wine is first opened. Flavours become more complex if the wine is allowed to aerate for a while. A wine with great balance and texture. Soft juicy fruit on the pallet is encased by fine, integrated tannins.
