The Great Red 2015 Stellenbosch

Another nice Lay And Wheeler, from a reliable South African winery. This is essentially a Bordeaux left bank blend with some Cinsault added. It's about £20 from the above merchant and always very reliable. This is benefiting from a few years of bottle age and has beautiful blackcurrant and sandalwood notes but with the freshness and hints of capsicums that you'd expect from a non-French Cabernet blend.
Lovely. Drink now - 2025. 17.5/20
