Paarl Syrah 2014

See previous note 106 weeks ago. Dense crimson black. Quite ripe fruit on nose and palate. Lovely richness without excessive weight. Finishes dry. Medium minus acid. Georgie said some Animale note with white pepper. In our blind tasting options, Barb and Georgie thought this was Australian which was a fair assumption. Excuse the water damaged label. — a month ago

The FMC Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc 2012

Brightest and most brilliant golden yellow I’ve ever seen, almost fluorescent!
Very unctuous and oily, sexy, Rubenesque.
Dense apricot, peach and mango. Thick layer of honey, some minerals. Full bodied and sweetish at first, getting drier towards the very long, harmonious finish.
Impressive and delicious!

The Chocolate Block Cinsault Blend 2020

Wine was deep ruby in appearance. On the nose, there was a medium intensity of red fruit such as raspberry and strawberry, with notes of cocoa. The palate matched the aromas, but with a little bit of spice, at a pronounced intensity. Body is medium, acidity is high, tannin is medium and grippy, alcohol is medium. Overall, a very balanced wine with a long finish that starts of intense, but smooth out as time goes on. The wine is complex and balanced. overall an outstanding wine! — 11 days ago
