Tasting Notes

Crushed pepper, smoke, toasty oak and roasting spices dance around a core of dark fruit. This wine packs a lot of punch at the price, delivering a full flavoured palate with intense fruit and spice wrapped in firm, but well-rounded tannins and a lingering savoury finish.

Food Pairing

Try it with chorizo and bean risotto, grilled venison, or even peri-peri chicken.

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.
