New! South African red gem

South African CaracalAnother new wine to the Majestic range and this week I’m showing you a little gem from South Africa. An impressive Bordeaux-esq wine of fantastic quality and all the traits to conclude it will be even better with a year or two to mature in the bottle. This is more than likely to be open in many Majestic stores whilst we have our free in-store South African themed tasting. If you’ve not been into your local store this weekend pop in this evening or tomorrow. Despite the tasting coming to a close tomorrow our 20% off discount when you purchase any 2+ South African wines as part of your mixed case continues throughout our Spring promotional period!

The Caracal 2006 Neethlingshof, Stellenbosch

£14.99
Buy any 2 South African wines save 20% = £11.99*

GRAPE: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc

ORIGIN: A Bordeaux blend from one of the Cape’s oldest estates, this wine has been named after the Caracal, a wild lynx-like cat indigenous to South Africa, which has recently been introduced to the Neethlingshof vineyards as a natural ‘Darwinian’ form of pest control.

TASTE: 12 months’ maturation in new and old French oak barrels has lent this wine lovely toasty and cedary aromas, and smoothed the ample tannins which envelope the core of juicy blackberry and mulberry fruit.

ENJOY: Drink with slow-braised meats such as oxtail or pork belly.

ABV: 14.5%
