Red Wine – South Africa
Blueish Black 2012, Post house, Stellenbosch (14.0% abv) (Unfiltered)
Post House is a traditional family estate nestled on a ridge of the Helderberg Mountains. The wines are made in traditional winemaking methods, the philosophy is to interfere as little as possible in the creation of the wine making process. Blueish Black, apparently a term used to describe stamps, is made from 42% Shiraz, 22% Pinotage, 18% Cabernet and 18% Merlot. Dark blueish black wine with good colour. A nose of mulberries, red currant and ripe strawberries with a hint of pepper and spice. Full bodied rich wine with supple soft tannins for easy drinking. This wine is unfiltered so may be slightly cloudy and there may be a slight deposit!
