This is bravely labelled 'Vin Ordinaire' - but it is far from ordinary. The idea is to be a no-frills, delicious-drinking red - and with this aim in mind, it is mission accomplished. This red is made in the beautiful Glenelly cellars with the help of our friend Luke O'Cuinneagain. The Cabernet Franc element is well-judged and adds a good spiced line of high toned fruit through the darker fleshier elements. A blend of vineyards and numerous grape varieties - when asked how many varieties are included the joke is 'Well, its almost the whole alphabet!' Great value, easy going red with surprising texture and interest. L&S (Feb 2019)

Cape Bordeaux blend. Very bright fruit and well balanced. Such purity and confidence! Drinking range: 2019 - 2020Jancis Robinson MW OBE - 2019)

This is one of the most ebullient and exciting new reds in the Cape. The recipe is 36% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from Stellenbosch added to 9% each of Shiraz, Merlot and Petit Verdot from Stellenbosch and Swartland. It is a stunner!Matthew Jukes 2019)
