Roodeberg Reserve is a full-bodied red for hearty comfort food.
Winter is the time to bring out full-bodied reds, best enjoyed by the fireside or with
heart-warming comfort food. New Roodeberg Reserve, a blend of the finest barrels
in the cellar, is the perfect wine to rekindle these chilly days.
An ideal rainy-day food companion, this consummate blend will work its magic with
meaty casseroles, roasts and game dishes. It also infuses rich flavour when added
to hearty winter dishes such as foodie Elmarie Berry’s belly-filling oxtail with green
olives and orange.
An intense and richly textured wine, Roodeberg Reserve 2017 is meticulously
crafted from Cabernet Sauvignon (48%), Shiraz (23%), Tempranillo (12%), Petit
Verdot (7%), Petit Sirah (4%) and splashes of Cabernet Franc (3%), Merlot (2%) and
Malbec (1%). Intricate layers of red plum, blueberries, crushed herbs and tobacco
leaf with hints of dark chocolate are rounded off by soft, silky tannins.
A true South African original that has stood the test of time for over 70 years,
Roodeberg is the heart and soul of memorable get-togethers and is best enjoyed in
the company of good friends.
