Rhebokskloof The MDS 2018
Rhebokskloof Wine Estate is located in the Agter-Paarl area. Winemaker Rolanie Lotz is especially renowned for crafting excellent Rhone-style varietals and blends, specialising in Shiraz, and the Rhebokskloof The MDS 2018 is no exception. This red wine is an unconventional Rhone-style blend made up mostly of varietals known to be workhorses that add structure rather than aromatics. Namely Mourvèdre, Durif and Shiraz. This vintage was awarded a Double Gold by Michelangelo, Silver by Decanter and 4 stars by Platter’s.
Garnet-tinged ruby; aromas of mulberry, black plum and dried herbs with some earthiness. Full-bodied & dry, prunes with same earthy tones lifted by fresh acidity & supported by good oak. The complete package.
Tender lamb and vegetable potjie, or a spicy chicken and chorizo sausage bake from the oven, or a hearty cottage pie.
