This wine could come from the Old World. I still find burnt rubber in most South African reds to this day, but not in this one – well done. It feels natural, in a good way (no faults). Pure, gentle, unforced; it’s even cheerful. Lovely, but on the other it’s not a complex wine and lacks the varietals’ character. Red fruits and a bit of reduction. Silky, almost light on the palate, with low acidity and welcomed stem tannins on the finish. I would happily drink this, but it’s way overpriced.
