    Bosman Family Vineyards Upper Hemel en Aarde Red Blend 2020

    R 270.00

    This Red Blend is: 61% Merlot, 19% Roobernet, 11% Malbec, 4.5% Petit Verdot, 4.5% Ruby Cabernet

    Roobernet is a red grape developed in South Africa in the 1960s by Prof Chris Orffer by crossing Cabernet Sauvignon and Alicante Bouschet. Similar to Pontac, Roobernet is a 'teinturer' variety – its flesh and juice are red instead of clear as in other red cultivars. This makes it a good blending partner due to its intense colour. 

    What can you expect?

    A medium-bodied red wine with ripe blackberries, plums, liquorice and refined tannins with a long lingering finish.

    Only 2 barrels made, exclusively available through Susan Stanleys
