South African Reds Return

southafricanredsThis Tuesday Tasting (August 7) we feature 3 big bold reds from the Stellenbosch region near the Cape of Good Hope. Featuring:

  • Chamonix Rouge – This medium-bodied red blend of Cab, Merlot, Malbec and Petite Verdot, strikes an elegant balance of ripe fruit and restrained minerality tasting of red currants, spices and vanilla with a touch of cedar. $16 btl, $8 btg
  • Tormentosa Cabernet – Sourced from dry-farmed shale soil (which helps create their famous flavour-filled “tormented” grapes) this rich Cab tastes of dark juicy berries with a hint of toasted coconut and tobacco on the finish. $15 btl, $7 btg
  • Beau Joubert Ambassador – This big blend of Merlot, Cab and Shiraz results in a complex wine tasting of dark berries, stewed fruits, spice, mocha and cigars with a long, elegant finish. $22 btl, $8 btg
