2018 Miles Mossop Sam
A fourth wine, in honour of Sam his wife comes into the range from the 2017 vintage. The wine is Stellenbosch in origin, with 85% Cabernet Sauvignon from Bellevue and Merlot from Hartenberg. Just two barrels were produced. dark plum red in colour. Aromas of blackcurrant and dark cherry fruit, with hints of cedar wood and tobacco leaf, underpinned by vanilla oak and a savoury black olive and five spice character. Juicy black cherry and blackcurrant flavours on the palate leading to a textured dry savoury mid-palate and a long finish with a perfectly balanced acidity. The tannins are firm and dry yet elegant.
