MENU's Wine of the week Blaauwklippen Cabriolet 2016

This year's Blending Competition winner, a blend of 8% Zinfandel, 15% Cabernet Franc, 30% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot & 40% Shiraz. With incense and vanilla wood, it has berries and whiffs of geraniums from the Zinfandel. On the palate there are soft, sweet, chewy, chalky tannins; it is full of ripe fruit, with hints of violet from the Petit Verdot and a zing from the Zinfandel
The wine is sold in 750 ml & Magnum bottles from selected retail outlets, the farm’s Tasting Room and online via www.blaauwklippen.com at R112 per bottle and R230 for the 1.5 litre bottle. Very good value for parties and large dinners
