Edgebaston The Pepper Pot 2017

88 pts Vinous/Tanzer

Tasting Notes

Fuller bodied, this has an engaging smooth and supple texture with a core of juicy dark red berry fruit flavors accentuated with spice and pepper notes. This plays a perfect balance between the vibrant fruit flavors and savory notes with ripe, perfectly integrated tannins bringing this to an impressive finish. Showing well as we speak this should bring a lot of pleasure over the next couple of years. This represents excellent value.

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

88 pts Vinous/Tanzer
Dark red. Musky, earthy scents of redcurrant, red plum, wild herbs and black pepper, plus hints of licorice and woodsmoke. Dark raspberry, licorice and pepper flavors show good density and sweetness for the price range. Smooth framing tannins won’t get in the way of enjoying this spicy, peppery blend right now. A very good value, and not short.

Winemaker Notes

Fermented in a number of small batches ranging in ferment size from 1,5 ton to 5 ton. Combination of natural ferments and inoculated ferments. Punchdown and pump over regimes depending on the tank and nature of the grapes in each case. Light pressing followed by maturation barrel. Blended for spiciness and smoothness of tannin.

Made from grown grapes in the Stellenbosch and Paarl regions, this wine is created to show the fresh, fruity and spice driven flavours of these Rhone varietals. The colour is youthful and purple/red. The nose is one of crushed black pepper, dark mulberry and mixed berry coulis." Indicative blend: Mourvedre, Tannat & Syrah.
