The story of this wine

Jemma is our old bush vehicle, which carried us on wonderful adventures to remote and pristine places. She is now engaged in seeking out grapes, and in motivating funding for conservation. The label features a water colour painting by Jenny Metelerkamp, our friend and companion when we lived in the bush in Botswana.

Tasting notes

A classy medium to full bodied wine with typical Cab flavours of black current, brambly fruit, cigar box augmented by toasty oak. The wine has a lovely rich mid mouth texture, a long fruit driven finish with fresh acid and ripe tannins.

Food suggestions

Enjoy with a variety of meat dishes such as home-made lamb burgers, sticky roasted pork belly or braised lamb shanks.
