Idiom ‘C’ – Cape Blend 2019


A velvety opulent wine made with the Cape’s own grape Pinotage blended with noble varieties. Rich and intriguing aromas and flavours with exploding layers of red fruits with notes of ripe plums, red velvet cake and tobacco. Soft tannins, balance and complexity are hallmarks of this uniquely South African. Fantastic with signature steakhouse cuts or Malay curries.

Pinotage (43%), Cabernet Sauvignon (29%), Merlot (19%), Petit Verdot (9%)
