Nose

Cassis, Flat cola, dried prune, mocha, black pepper ending with a minty glow. Palate

Matured in French oak for 20 months, this Three Cape Ladies red blend is deliciously bold and full bodied, your palate will get completely swept away with a mouthful full of deep dark plums, with subtle notes of mocha, black pepper and a whisper on fresh fennel. There's a slight bit of sweet fruitiness which balances out the chalky tannin's making the wine quite moreish.

Food suggestions

Boeuf Bouruignon, ostrich, game, sirloin and quinoa stuffed bell peppers

Overall all

I'm off to purchase a few more, then lay these red ladies to bed for another 5-8 years.
