Wine Style: Full Bodied Red
Closure: Cork / Cork Type
Producer: Miles Mossop
Miles Mossop Wines burst onto the scene in 2004 when the first wines were made: the Max 2004, a red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot and Petit Verdot, and the Saskia 2004, a white blend of Chenin blanc and Viognier. Later in 2010 the first vintage of the Kika 2009, a Noble Late harvest made from Chenin blanc was introduced.
This wine exhibits a dark plum colour in the centre with a bright ruby rim. The nose has Christmas cake aromas with dark cherries, blackcurrant and a hint of mint. This is balanced by notes of dark cocoa and savoury meats with hints of cedar to complement this complex nose.
The flavours are full, rich and lingering. The wine enters the palate with flavours of dark black fruits, savoury meats and dried herbs. The mid palate is full and rich with a fine texture. The tannins are firm and dry which offers an exceptionally long finish which exhibits a hint of black olives.
Serve with smoked meats, venison pie, beef fillet with a red wine sauce or an oxtail stew made in an Osso Bucco style.
The wine also pairs well with hard cheeses.
To be enjoyed immediately after release but will improve with cellaring for up to 12 years from harvest.
