    Quality is the leading component with the formation of MR de Compostella epitomizing the meeting of two strong winemaking minds and an existing friendship between Mzokona Mvemve (the M) and Bruwer Raats (the R). de Compostella itself refers to a constellation of stars, with each shining star being a tiny addition to the larger blend of the galaxy that makes for something spectacular. Harmoniously composed of the five Bordeaux varieties to ensure none dominate it is composed of 43% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 10% Malbec and 6% Petit Verdot. This wine shows a consistent, linear flavour profile with a polished and well-defined finish.

    What can you expect?

    Together, the MR de Compostella is driven neither by style nor variety, but by its leading star component – quality. Deep, dark and intense ruby colour. Blackcurrant and black cherry fruit with hints of violets, cedar and cinnamon. Rich and complex with mineral, blackberry fruit and dark chocolate on the finish.

    Food pairing?

    Enjoy with well-aged sirloin, rib-eye, filet mignon or hard cheeses.
