Edgebaston The Pepper Pot 2015

Made from grown grapes in the Stellenbosch and Paarl regions, this wine is created to show the fresh, fruity and spice driven flavours of these Rhone varietals.  The colour is youthful and purple/red.  The nose is one of crushed black pepper, dark mulberry and mixed berry coulis. 

Pure, clean dark red berry flavours flow onto a smooth palate with sufficient structure to warrant enjoyment with food such as Gourmet Pizza with Carpaccio and rocket salad.
