Tasting Notes

This popular, easy go-to red has cherry tomato and herbal aromas softened nicely by sweet chock-mint and a touch of coffee. Soft, plush tannins on the seamless palate has medium-bodied, no-nonsense charm.

Food Pairing

Easy for unwinding with on its own, or as an al-fresco antipasto companion, especially terrines with lots of fresh herbs.

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.
