Stellenrust Simplicity 2013

Stellenrust Simplicity 2013

The nose shows spicy moccha flavours and some vanilla notes derived from the American oak. The palate is rich, filled with ripe fruit, pepper and hints of violets, cassis and dark chocolate; smoothed with subtle Merlot flavours and vanilla oak. And the name Simplicity?: well, many great things are born from keeping it simple.

An excellent accompaniment to fillet medallions, drowned in mustard pepper with a cranberry reduction or just something simple like a beef burger with fries or a Barbeque chicken salad topped with fresh mascarpone cheese.
