THE GOOD GUYS MUSE
The aroma of cotton candy starts you on a mysterious journey, followed by spice with hints of white pepper and dark berries. An expressive Swartland-style, four cultivar red blend of grapes from characterful old vines, classy and complex with a juicy palate – like its area of origin, somewhat mysterious and reminiscent of classic Old World Rhône wine. A wine to be shared on a fun filled night of laughter and good memories.
Platters Guide: 4.5/5 Stars
Soft elegant mouth feel with well integrated tannins. Delicious cherry and berry notes on the palate. At the same time smells of fresh berries with mulberry and currants being prominent. Well integrated spice flavours.
The grapes were handpicked early morning. Hand-sorted and only the best grapes were used, before a mixture of whole bunch and partially de-stemmed pressing. Partial carbonic maceration was allowed on some of the batches. The various components spent 14 months aging in 500 L French oak barrels, 5 000 L foudres* and concrete tanks. One year’s bottleaging took place before release. A complex Swartland terroir-driven wine – originating from old Syrah, Grenache, Mourvédre and Carignan vines
74% Syrah, 17% Grenache, 6% Mourvèdre, 3% Carignan
