MENU’s Wine of the Week. Namaqua Wines Spencer Bay Winemakers Reserve The Blend 2017

We have tasted a large number of excellent wines since the last issue of MENU was published,
but this one stands out, not just because it is very good, but because it is exceptionally good value
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Very approachable on the nose, with chocolate and black cherries
Soft chewy tannins, good fruit, cherries and cassis, this wine has tension and length
It is very impressive now and will surely be in the future.  R125 ex cellar
We think it will win awards. Lynne scored this one 18.5/20 or 92.5/100
