MENU's Wine of the Week. Jacaranda Cuvée Rouge

This wine wowed us when we visited last weekend. Jacaranda is the smallest registered Wine Estate in South Africa

It's a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Petit Verdot and 28% Merlot. Dark garnet in colour, with incense wood, rich red berries and of course violets from the Petit Verdot. Lovely juicy fruit - raspberries, mulberries and the violets are on the palate too. Gentle licorice wood from the 9 months in oak with some warmth and some nice chewy tannins on the end. A wine you just want to keep on drinking with or without food and with friends. We would pair this with meat dishes and rich sauces. R115 from the farm
