Red Nose Day Red

Two wines have just appeared on various supermarket shelves in support of Red Nose Day (see The Foodie List for more details).

Both are produced by the SAAM Mountain Vineyards in Paarl, South Africa and come with a £4.99 price tag. At least £1 from the sale of each bottle of wine will be spent by Comic Relief to give disadvantaged people in the UK and Africa a helping hand to turn their lives around. SAAM Mountain Vineyards, created in 2007, compises 40 South African growers who farm vineyards that streatch between Paarl to the Durbanville Hills. Bottled in the UK the wines come in lightweight clear glass bottles, making for easier recycling. Approximately 735,768 bottles of Red Nose Wines have been produced.

Red Wine Review/Tasting NoteWine Tasting Note: Comic Relief Red Nose Day Red , 2008, Paarl, South Africa
Stockist: Widely Available Price: £4.99 [More on Adegga / Snooth]
Think brawny, robust and sturdy but with a contradictory lightness. Think blackberry stains, fingers pricked by brambles plus a dribble of red, crunchy fruits on the finish. Drinkable, attractive, pleasing on the palate and well worth throwing a fiver at. Alcohol 14%. A Pinotage Shiraz blend.

Scribblings Rating - 88/100 [3.5 out of 5]

White Wine Review/Tasting NoteWine Tasting Note: Red Nose Day White , 2008, Paarl, South Africa.
Stockist: Widely available Price: £4.99 [More: Adegga / Snooth]
Prickly on the palate, fresh, clean and prim on the nose. Crisp and long lasting pear flavours, with a green tanginess to the flavour. Very good sherbet, slightly confected, finish. Quite full but with a lightness of touch via a pea-green twist on the finish. Again good value.
Alcohol 13.5%.

Scribblings Rating - 88/100 [3.5 out of 5]
