Neils Verburg blends this with shiraz (77 percent) and Mourvedre at his estate in the Bot River Valley, adding four percent Cabernet Sauvignon from a vineyard in Walker Bay. It’s intriguing in how the wine transforms what in some Cape reds reads as ashy tannins, presented here as something more akin to the charry edges of meat roasted on a spit. It’s brash, but it’s also juicy and clean, the black fruit flavors cooled by a mineral edge of wet rock. Match its intensity with thick-cut lamb chops off the grill… or spit-roasted boat. (W&S)
