The 2016 Chakalaka consists of 6 grape varieties (36% Mourvèdre, 22% Syrah, 13% Carignan, , 11% Grenache, 9% Tannat and 9% Petite Sirah) blended to produce an expressive wine with good flavour profile. The wine shows aromas of clove and subtle white pepper followed by plum and hints of elegant spice coupled with a luscious and rich palate followed by smooth, integrated oak and well balanced tannins. A bold wine like this can hold up to the flavours of slow-roasted meat (lovely with barbequed pork) and Asian cuisine, such as plum sauce, will add to the fruitiness in the wine.
Chakalaka, a Zulu word that implies togetherness, refers to a truly South African blend of spices, used to add flavour to local dishes. A reflection of the “Rainbow Nation”, this wine is inspired by the cultural diversity of which Spice Route are justly proud. Traditional practices in the vineyards and a delicate hand in the cellar craft the Spice Route Chakalaka blend: a sum of many parts selected for their ability to express the soils of the Swartland wine region harmoniously.
