- Case (Member)
- South Africa
- Walker Bay
- Bottle size
- 750 mL
This blend of Shiraz and Merlot shows aromas of dried herbs and black pepper on the nose with subtle sweet, ripe red fruit aromas. The elegant sweet fruit on the palate is complemented by the well-integrated tannin structure and a smooth, lingering finish.
- Growing Conditions
The use of straw bales for mulching and the establishment of covercrops have doubled the original organic content of the top soil. The clay soils have a natural high soil water retention capacity, which facilitates the limited use of supplementary water irrigation from fresh mountain water.
- Food Pairing
The Matilda’s Secret will complement many red meat dishes, grilled chicken and a selection of cheeses.
