A cocktail of freshly muddled raspberry, red cherry, thyme, anise and dried rose petals sing on the nose. Silky and seductive on the palate, twangs of game and dried Mediterranean herb persist. As an homage to the grape's country-of-origin, enjoy this exotic red alongside traditional South African braai fare.
Formerly working in the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, Peartree's passion for terroir-expressive products, which spans from wine to cider and tea, is only rivaled by his love of canoeing and hiking. He prefers to focus on wines from Virginia, Michigan, Texas and other smaller U.S. regions, as well as domestic and international cider.
