Layered and perfumed aromas of violets, plum, charcuterie spice and cocoa captivate the senses. On the palate there is dense black fruit, spice followed by supple age-worthy tannin and freshness. Spice Route Malabar 2015 is best complimented with slow roasted lamb or even a charcuterie tapas selection.
50% Syrah | 25% Mourvèdre | 17% Grenache| 8% Petite Sirah
“With a very good winter rainfall of 577mm, we could carefully select each parcel of fruit to create a wine that truly reflects the excellence of the Swartland region. The wine has a well-integrated palate, opulent tannin structure and balanced mouth feel, giving it the potential to age another decade. Only 12 barrels were made though, so act quick. Due to the drought in 2016/2017 no Malabar was made. Enjoy!” – Charl du Plessis
