Taste

Pairing

Opt for a show-stealing dish like roast duck with plum reduction, which is perfectly balanced by the moderate tannins of this wine.

Aromas and Flavours

Cherry

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

Bramble

Juicy dark berries picked straight from the bush, with a subtle hint of leaf and earthiness.

Jam

Spreading grandma's homemade jam on your morning toast (yes, the bread was homemade too).

Vanilla

A sweet spice aroma that indicates oak-ageing - think vanilla bean frappuccino!

Herbs

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

Description

Essay is a play on S.A. (South Africa's abbreviated name), and it captures the magic of the Cape in a complex, balanced blend. Light oak softens the palate of this fruit-forward red.
