Description

Chakalaka is Spice Route's signature wine. It is a blend of six different grape varieties. The vineyards are planted on Richter 99 rootstock and are mainly bushvine planted on deep iron-rich clay soils, farmed without irrigation. The varieties Mourvèdre, Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Petite Sirah and Tannat were selected for their suitability to the Swartland growing conditions, blended to express place before grape. The name is derived from a spicy South African relish which is similarly a fusion of different flavours.
Tasting Notes: Deep ruby red. Aromas of clove and subtle white pepper followed by plum with hints of elegant spice. A luscious and rich palate followed by smooth, integrated oak and well balanced tannins.
