MENU’s Wine of the Week. Boet Erasmus 2015 red blend, from Vrede en Lust

A perfect wine to have with your Christmas dinner, so full of life and good fruit; their top wine, an oh, so elegant classic;
a new world Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc

The Boet Erasmus has incense wood and posies of violets on the nose, so pretty. Then ripe cassis berries shine through. On the palate, pure cassis fruit-driven at first, then the other varietals show their characteristics. What a lovely wine, with character and depth; so easy to drink and to enjoy with good food, a classic expression of the blend; a wine for celebrations. R225 from the farm
