The Pepper Pot by Edgebaston in South Africa is a powerful wine! Exactly as it says on the label, it’s spicy, packs a punch and is a pleasure to drink. The wine was created to show off the spicy varietals of the Rhone whilst still remaining fresh and fruity when in perfect balance.
The colour of the wine is youthful and gives off a purple/red hue on the edges. A glass of The Pepper Pot gives off an aroma of crushed black pepper (unsurprisingly) as well as a rich aroma of black fruits; dark Mulberry’s and a mixed berry coulis is dominant on the nose.The aroma carries through to the palate where the wine has an instant spice to it as well as a clean fresh red berry flavour which rounds off to a fabulously smooth finish to give the wine an excellent after taste and suitable for drinking with a meal and not be too dominating giving it a great structure.
This is a wine enjoyed with food such as gourmet pizza with carpaccio and rocket salad.
Made from grapes grown in both Stellenbosch and Paal, The Pepper Pot is made up predominantly of Shiraz with Mourvèdre, Carignan, Tannat, Grenache, Cinsault also in the blend. All grapes are hand picked and fermented in stainless steel tanks using different techniques for each grape. Soft pressing the fruit however was a constant feature, allowing the grape characteristics to shine through.
