Profile

Smell

This wine shows off some ripe black plum, black cherry, and blueberry, with a touch of clove and cinnamon. There is a very slight barnyard aroma that doesn’t stick around too long - the fruit is truly the star of the show with this blend.

Taste

The region of Stellenbosch is well-suited to the Rhone varieties of Shiraz and Cinsault. This fruit-forward wine is soft and supple, while being medium-bodied, showing medium tannins, with a medium+ acidity. There are juicy fruit flavours of black plum, black cherry, and blueberry, along with some baking spice. Well balanced and delicious.

Pairing

Chill slightly, then open this with anything from grilled eggplant-stuffed red peppers, to burgers, to ribs. It’s your ideal summer BBQ red!

Aromas and Flavours

Plum

Sweet, fruity and sensual, similar stone fruit aromas to a peach, but without the 'fuzziness.'

Cherry

Fresh B.C. cherries out of the back of a truck, all eaten before you can get them home!

Blueberry

Eating handfuls of berries straight from the bush, your fingers stained purple for days to come.

Pepper

A whiff of a freshly used pepper grinder - spicy and fresh, without the itchy nose.

Herbs

Your windowsill herb garden gives off a lovely herbal smell every time you walk by.

Description

This Shiraz/Cinsault blend is the second of two awarding-winning wines from Ses’Fikile that we are excited to share with our WineCollective members! The wines from Ses’fikile really aim to sparkle with the enigmatic allure of the African Renaissance. The winery’s goal is to make the best wines in South Africa.

Nondumiso Pikashe was a high school teacher before she decided to jump into the world of wine in 2006. She had an entrepreneurial spirit that just could not be ignored. The words “ses’fikile” translates from Xhosa, the language of her ancestors, as “We have arrived.” Since 2016, Nondumiso has been in partnership with Leeuwenkuil Family Vineyards, and although she doesn’t make the wines, she works closely with a team of winemakers and makes the decisions on what styles of wines will be made. She sometimes even helps with the harvest! The team of all female winemakers tastes as a group until they get what the end result Nondumiso is looking for.

Enjoy this wine served with a slight chill at 16 C, from now until 2024.
