Very happily received a bottle of Grande Provence Angels Tears Red 2017. The wine from the historic old farm in Franschhoek, grape Appellation given as western Cape.
This blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon is given a nickname at the bottom of the label. It is technically dry in that there is less than 5 grams per litre of residual sugar in the wine. It is deliciously sweet fruited.
From a Bordeaux shaped bottle, closed with a screw cap. The label is fun and quirky, I like that it is one colour. In the glass, the wine is a slightly translucent bloodplum cherry red at the heart which pales out to ruby at the edges. Red berries, cherries, roadside brambles appear in the nose and on the palate which it generously filled. Medium of body, with cashmere clad tannins. The wine is ready for drinking now and, not to damn it with feint praise, it is incredibly easy to drink, especially if lightly chilled. We loved it.
The Grande Provence Angels Tears Red 2017 likes robust food leaning towards Italian, pizza, pasta. Great with a boerie roll and caramelised onions. Perfect with a good tranche of Dalewood Fromage Huguenot, the 6-month aged one.
