BOTTLE OF CAPE ROCK AMNESTY RED 2017
SYRAH 34%, GRENACHE 33%, MOURVÈDRE 33%
A low intervention wine exploring the idea of what simple table wine making should be today, reflecting the terroir of the coastal Olifants River region in a light and fruity dry red wine.
Light in colour and body with a sweet nose of red summer berries, red fruits and spicy notes. The wine was made to be enjoyed at release, but should improve with age for up to 5 years after release. Amnesty is to be served chilled during summer evenings and will go well if paired with charcuterie or breads and hard cheeses.
