Earthy, Velvety & Smokey
Tasting Notes: Schalk Burger & Sons and Sporting Wine Club are proud to work with Doddie Weir OBE to deliver this magnificent blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot , Mourvèdre and Petit Verdot, representing Bordeaux’s 5 red cultivars.
Food Pairing: Pairs well with red, savoury meats, grilled or roasted. As well as Hard British territorial cheeses such as Cheshire and Red Leicester or a Scottish Anster.
”A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Mourvèdre and Petit Verdot, this is a genuinely impressive red Cape Bordeaux blend assemblage made in a true style where the whole is definitely greater than the sum of its individual parts revealing very pretty, seductive aromatics of fine dried herbal spice, ripe black plums, earthy black currants, sappy cedar spice and a delicate brûléed kiss of oak. The palate is equally alluring showing a harmonious creamy opulence and a super silky texture together with a real accessibility, finessed tannins and a weightless brambly black berry fruit concentration on the finish. Youthfully exuberant and utterly delicious already, this is a fine wine with character and class… just like the man in who’s honour it was created to celebrate. Drink now and over 8+ years.”
