Spice Route Red Blend Swartland Chakalaka 2009
External Reviews for Spice Route Red Blend Swartland Chakalaka
Dark and winey, with lots of sappy kirsch, blackberry and plum sauce notes supported by dark licorice and sweet spice through the finish. Shows nice range and character. Syrah, Mourvandegrave;dre, Carignane, Petite Sirah, Grenache and Tannat. Drink now.
A super-interesting blend of 37% Syrah, 21% Mourvandegrave;dre, 18% Carignan, 10% Petite Sirah, 10% Grenache and 8% Tannat, the bouquet is loaded with assertive aromas of black currant, licorice, black olive, whole tobacco leaf, cigar box spice and leather. Creamy but firmly textured, like crushed velvet, with a rich boysenberry and plum juiciness to the palate.
