Rhebokskloof Rhebok 2020
A cluster of red and dark berries explode out of the glass layered with
spicy clove aromas. The palate is rich and opulent with cranberry and
blackberry notes with a savoury top note of black olives and hints of
sweet cardamom. The wine is firm but elegant with a velvety mouthfeel
and grippy tannin on the finish.

The color is a deep ruby coating the glass as it swirls around. Mixed berry
compote, terracotta, and bright, juicy plums cascade through the nose. While
the palate is bursting with black cherry, baking spice, and lavender. The
complexity of flavours coats the mouth with a lingering finish.
The wine is best paired with slow-braised, grilled, and stewed meat, rich, hearty dishes, so the tannins can meld with the protein and enhance the flavours.
