Charles Back Private Collection Back’s Blend

R100.00 R80.00

The Back’s Blend is a blend of Shiraz, Merlot and Tannat. This wine was crafted for our loyal club members and our Fairview fans. It has a deep red colour and reveals ripe plums, hints of black pepper and lavender on the nose. This medium bodied wine has notes of fresh raspberries on the palate with well integrated tannins and a savoury finish. Drink now or in the next 3 – 5 years.
