Mill Race, Stellenbosch

2005 Mill Race, Vergelegen
Stellenbosch, South Africa
107 SEK ♥+

Medium-bodied red wine with dark red colour. Medium intense nose with black current notes and green capsicum, some chocolate. Alcoohool. Palate: black current, the same green capsicum.

14,5 % abv. (yes)
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Drink now.

Serve with stews, red meat. We had it with a taco-cake, which our daughter Nathalie had prepared for us.
