Tasting Notes

This pure, bold expression shines with black currants and violets. Inner perfume of liquorice, sandalwood and baking spices from a lick of oak. Wonderful balance on the palate, still offering juicy acidity and a solid spine, with a mouth-watering finish.

Food Pairing

Enjoy with five-spice rubbed pork belly or Italian sausage with cumin and fennel bulb on your favourite pasta or pizza.

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.
