Wine of Origin, Western Cape, South Africa; 12.5% ABV
$2 at the Richmond, CA, store on 22 July
This wine is medium in body and flavor, but very pleasant for the price. It shows riper, yellow tropical and white melon fruit, not completely simple, with nicely balancing acid and a little bitterness of grape skin, and gentle texture and length to the taste. For this price, Thumbs Up!
Next day, wine is only slightly less balanced overall, as the fruit is riper and heavier and the acid a little stronger. However, this is a small quibble, as it’s still a lovely little quaffer, and very good for the low price.
