Man Family, Syrah, Skaapveld 2018
A family estate red deftly vinified in South Africa’s sun drenched Western Cape, this Syrah is a beautiful expression that marries old world elegance with new world style, tasting of concentrated dark fruit, laced with elegant texture and soft tannins, finishing long. This Syrah pairs nicely with a whole range of Indian cuisine.
Vinologist, Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
An adventurous style of red wine crafted by South African wine legend Marc Kent, this Cabernet teems with a dollop of ripe cherries and plum and whiff of spice and chocolate. This wine expresses great regional style and is a triumph of creative winemaking.
