MENU’s Wine of the Week. Fat Barrel OTB 2014,

an Ode to Bor….deaux from Stellenbosch. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot

It has a lovely nose of herbaceousness and fresh red berries, with some vanillins and violets. Sweet berry fruit, a hint of toasted oak, good tannins and some chalk and minerality on the end. No faults. Lovely with food, especially rich meat dishes. And a snip at R55 from Get Wine (was R95)
