A 2017 Rhone style red blend from South Africa. This winery just east of Cape Town blends 71% Syrah, 28% Mourvedre, and 1% Viognier aged in French oak. Viognier is a white grape sometimes added to red to introduce its floral perfume characteristics. Raspberry, blackberry, black pepper, licorice, smoke, chocolate, cinnamon, funky barnyard. The finish is fairly bitter and salty brine. Alcohol is 14.5%, acidity medium. Easy drinking wine with decent complexity for the price.
