Prime Cuts Red, 2017

Think of this wine as a wine grenade; a primed, heady concoction of preposterously fresh, lush tangy fruit. Twist… POW!!


100% Red Blend

How it's made

This red is made from a blend of Shiraz, Petit Verdot and Cinsault grapes from the Swartland area where the powerful South African sunshine makes sure these reach their utmost ripeness. All grapes are picked by hand, softly crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The result is a lively wine with a juicy, creamy finish that combines well with food or simply enjoyed on its own.

Tasting Notes

A blend of classic South African grape varieties – the notion of 'droë rooi' (dry red) in South Africa is traditional, well known and has long been established. In other markets, non-varietal red blends are often met with some resistance but then miss out on some AMAZINGLY great value wines. Therefore, Prime Cuts Red captures, with thoroughly appealing packaging, an absolute Cape classic. This wine is really juicy, accessible, soft, a bright red. LEKKER!! A nose of pure crushed fresh raspberries with that Swartland sandy element, complete with a palate of summer berries, cream and dark spice on the finish.

Food Match

A fantastic match to a huge variety of dishes from steak and chips, bangers and mash, juicy pink Sunday roast, to beef stir-fry or fresh summer salads.
