This blend of Shiraz and Pinotage will spice up your day with blackcurrant and plum notes and hints of mocha. A delicious mouthful of sweet fruit and mouth filling juicy tannin.

Although this wine is a great partner to rich lamb casseroles and gentle Malay curries, this wine makes the best companion to a typical South African braai.

‘Would that painting not make a beautiful wine label?’ Sue Sonnenberg said to husband, David one night. It wasn’t too long after that momentous night that the iconic Carl Büchner’s Harlequin depiction on the wall in their dining room, became the story behind this red blend.
This wine salutes the memory of this exemplary artist and sales of this wine will also generate a small fund for emerging artists in collaboration with the Assocoation of Arts in Pretoria.
