Spice Route Shiraz Blend Swartland Malabar 2008

Member Review by Dufur:

The price quoted should be in South African Rand, not US dollars. I had the good fortune to visit the vineyard recently in South Africa and it cost 300 Rand. Beautiful setting and this wine came out of left field and knocked me out. Wonderful blend for those who like an exotic, spicy, full-bodied wine. Of all the wines I imbibed in SA, this was the best. Excellent after a day of safari.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Lush and loaded, with layers of fig, raspberry ganache, incense and melted licorice, but it all manages to stay suave and elegant, with a fine-grained finish that lets fruit and spice notes linger. Shiraz, Mourvèdre, Petite Sirah and Grenache. Drink ... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Swartland in South Africa. 2004 Spice Route Malabar 750ml
