2010 Malgas Sijnn, WO Malgas

From the lesser known Malgas region this is a silky, suave, delicious red. There's a core of powerful dark fruit, with just a hint of development pushing through. Perfect to drink now and over the coming years, it's an absolute bargain.

TASTING NOTES

Syrah-based blend. Mid to deep crimson. Dark, withheld, dry, savoury and masses of potential but still so young! Chewy, meaty and complex but no hurry to drink this. Some fruit sweetness is just starting to escape the vault. Good value
