South African Red Blends

This Tuesday Tasting we feature 3 big bold reds from the Stellenbosch region near the Cape of Good Hope. Featuring:

  • Big Easy Red– This red blend of Shiraz, Cab, Grenache, Mouvedre, Cinsault and Viognier is made on the vineyard of South African golf great, Ernie Els. Ernie’s love of wine led to purchasing a vineyard that has become famous for making wines with a Southern French feel, including this silky red tasting of dark fruits, Asian spice and a hint of brandy. $17 btl, $8 btg
  • The Faithful Hound– An elegant Bordeaux blend featuring Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot resulting in a deep dark red tasting of currants, cherry, olive and a touch of pine. $19 btl, $9 btg
  • Kanonkop Kadette – Famous for making some of South Africa’s best Pinotages, Kanonkop has created a complex blend of Pinotage, Cab, Merlot and Cab Franc that is aged for more than a year in French oak to produce a deep ruby red tasting of raspberries, black currant and dark chocolate. $16 btl, $8 btg
