The Protea winemaking team blends the traditional Bordeaux varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, to create a serious yet approachable wine.
The blend: 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot
Notes: A beautiful deep ruby, the Protea Red immediately shows aromatic notes of blackberry, espresso and spice. On the palate the wine is full and juicy. Balancing ripe fruit and subtle tannins, the blend is a versatile choice for food pairings, especially anything on the grill.
