Tasting Notes

Power within elegance is achieved in this Bordeaux-style blend, offering dark fruit, mint, eucalyptus leaf and oak spice. A sense of effortless lightness on the palate that wraps cassis, cranberry and cedar flavours in plush tannins. Characterful, dry, pure finish. Still youthful, keep further for 5+ years.

Food Pairing

This classic red will pair well with typical Bordeaux red pairings like lamb casseroles or shepherd’s pie.

WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER

In recent weeks we have seen the increasing impact of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) on individuals, families, businesses, societies and countries around the world and here in South Africa. At Windmeul Cellar the safety of our customers and staff is paramount, therefore Windmeul Cellar will be closed as of 12:00pm today, 24 March 2020.

Unfortunately we will not be able to deliver online wine sales for the time being. You will still be able to make online purchases, but deliveries will only be fulfilled after lockdown - 16 April 2020

Thank you for supporting Windmeul for so many years. While on lockdown we hope you will be able to enjoy a nice glass of Windmeul wine.

We look forward to welcoming you back, but for the time being it is our sincere hope that you and your families stay safe and well.
