TN: Rustenberg Brampton OVR, 2002, Western Cape, South Africa.




Brampton OVR bottleWine Tasting Note: Rustenberg Brampton OVR, 2002, Western Cape, South Africa.
Waitrose and Independents £6.99.
Could they squeeze and more grapes into this? A heady blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (54%), Merlot (20%), Shiraz (18%), Carignan (4%), Mourvèdre (2%), Malbec (2%) - so informs the back label. Ripe blackberries on the nose – laced with cassis and pepper. Lovely rich, ripe palate, subdued tannic structure, acidity on the finish, flavours of spice and chocolate add to the complex flavours - raspberry, silky strawberry ending in a long lasting aftertaste. Delicious.
Scribblings Rating - 96/100

Awesome wine, thanks you just made my evening. At £6.99 this is an absolute bargain.

Tis a bit of a stunner I agree. Did you buy it after reading the recommendation here?

Yes, it went beautifully with the sirloin steak with sauce bearnaise and dauphinoise potatoes I had planned for dinner this evening.
