Cape Sun Blend

Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage


14.5 Alcohol


Friends, Neels Barnardt and John Boyes, collaborated their wine and agricultural experience into producing top-quality South African wines. Barnardt Boyes produces several lines of wine from vineyards in Stellenbosch, located in the Western Cape of South Africa. The vineyards of Stellenbosch are located about 50 km east of Cape Town, along the banks of the Eerste River. Undulating hills protect the vines in sheltered valleys, with an average elevation of 136 meters. Over 90% of the wines produced in South Africa are from the Western Cape, which is broken down into regions, then districts, and again into smaller wards. The Coastal Region is home to the Stellenbosch district, which to most, is the epicentre of South African wine. Generally, Stellenbosch is a Mediterranean climate, but the valleys, aspects and soil variation contribute to many micro-climates and produce unique styles of wine. Enjoy this year or cellar for 2-3 more years, serve at 17C.

How it looks

Dark cherry core, with brighter edges.

How it smells

Dense and layered with black licorice, milk chocolate, violets and black forest cake. Sweet bakingspices, bitter cocoa and hints of pepper take over the softer notes of plum, black cherry and blueberry.

How it tastes

A switch-up from the nose, with much more exaggerated berry notes of blackberry, cherry and stewed plums. Here, the vanilla and chocolate notes perform a supporting role. The palate is soft and round, medium bodied and juicy. There is good structure, but supple tannin and mild acidity. Touches of pepper remind us of the 86% Shiraz (10% Cabernet, 4% Pinotage).

Recommended food pairing

Grilled sausage, flank steak with ramesco sauce, herb coated chicken skewers. There is enough flavour to back up strong seasoning, zesty sauces, and grill marks.
