Morrison's 'The Best' 2005 by Bellevue Estate

Back from two days at the Festival of History. We spent all Sunday there before returning to the hotel to pick up our car, then it was a tiring drive back down the M1 motorway.

We collected a takeaway from Mumtaj (Karachi Kebab & Chana Massala for me). We were hungry and tired so I just grabbed a handy wine which happened to be Morrison's 'The Best' 2005 Pinotage.

And what a little cracker it is. Ignore the ghastly label, there are lots of bright blackberry fruits, no rough edges, just pure drinking pleasure.
In fact I have tasted this wine before. It is made by Bellevue Estate where it is available as part of their new empowerment project wine range under the Sizanani label. (and by chance I enjoyed the matching Chenin Blanc at a barbecue a couple of weeks ago).

I must return to this Pinotage and pay it more attention.
Price: Cellar door=22 ZAR (as Sizanani), UK Morrisons £6.99
Alc: 13%
WO: Stellenbosch
Drink: now-2010
