Joostenberg "Little J Red"
Blend: Syrah 69%, Grenache 13%, Cinsaut 11%, Mourvèdre 7%
This deep garnet blend is a medium-bodied red wine with an expressive nose and a soft, lush mouth-feel. The Shiraz gives ripe plum fruit and dark fruit notes on the nose and palate. Grenache softens the palate, adds floral notes and combines with Syrah to form the backbone of the blend. Mourvèdre adds complexity with savoury, leathery and spicy aromas. Cinsaut lends red fruits and a soft, lush mouthfeel to the final blend. The overall wine shows depth and finesse, but with a lighter body and gentle tannins. Paarl, South Africa
