Not that great really. I bought this in the 'lighting deal', and it is now cheaper than that! Obviously trying to get rid of it...

♦ 2012

This medium-bodied South African Cabernet Sauvignon has, to me, a dark berry/cherry mix of flavours with a hint of creamy chocolate and a touch of spice at the finish.
All this and more in a glass of wine which went down very well with a 70s inspired menu of chargrilled fillet steak, followed by good old Black Forest Gâteau (recipe from page 18 in The Prawn Cocktail Years), although we did crack open a bottle of its sister wine with the prawn cocktail (recipe from the same book, pages 14-15) to start with!

It hasn't pipped my overall favourite but comes in a close second.

ooOoo

XARO is the Khoi word for 'gift'.

'This wine pays tribute and acts as a 'gift' to the community of more than 250 people working and living on Stellenrust Vineyards. Mostly descendants of the original Khoi tribes, whose ancestors roamed the Cape long before it was discovered.
So often forgotten in modern day Africa, the legend of the Khoi, their traditions and wonderful culture, are reflected by warm hearts and hard work in both vineyards and cellar......'

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I love red wine but I had a real layman's approach to it. This has a taste that I'd definitely describe as spicy, and the eucalyptus flavours come through, as described. It's on the strong side, at 14%. The label's very nice too (emphasizing Fairtrade too) so it's a good choice for a gift, unless you'd prefer to guzzle the whole case yourself.

A good full bodied wine, but not too heavy. Very Enjoyable.
