Pretty Good

This stunning Zinfandel flaunts a dark red colour with a youthful garnet rim. The perfumed nose gives off intense aromas of fresh shiitake, sous-bois and red fruits, supported by scintillating scents of sweet and savoury spices like nutmeg, cloves, vanilla and cardamom. These fragrances further combine with cigar box and smoky oak notes, making way for a rich and textured palate containing ripe red fruit flavours. Smooth and chocolaty tannins balance these great characters, culminating the wine in a soft and lingering finish. The finale is accompanied by coffee and spiced panna cotta undertones. This exquisite Cape Mentelle Zinfandel has been crafted to be relished upon release, in its youth. It tastes marvellous with prime beef ribs, artisanal grilled sausages, molten chocolate lava cake and pancakes with orange blossom honey sauce.
