Asara Ebony 2010

Our Ebony & Ivory blends are easy drinking, every day wines that aim to satisfy a wide spectrum of tastes. Enjoy on its own, or with food but always with good company!

On the nose there is a combination of red berries and bell pepper. The taste is juicy and reminds of ripe plums with a soft nuance of mocha in the background - it simply is more-ish.

This wine is an ideal companion for any spicy dish or is a fabulous wine to take to your friend's braai.

about the harvest: The fourth consecutive warm winter leading up to the harvest was instrumental in causing a smaller crop than we expected. However, the colder winds of January and February provided an ideal climate for ripening the grapes. As a result, our Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot were harvested with excellent flavour retention.

in the cellar : At the cellar the grapes and wines were put through their paces in the normal way of minimal handling and classic maturation procedures in order to provide you with flavorful wines that have great structure but elegance and depth.
