Antonij Rupert, Syrah. Little Havanna, Umhlanga, South Africa. Delicate violet bouquet which mingles with ripe plum, black cherry and spice. Complex and inviting. A pliable, textured wine packed with silky rich, ripe black fruit. The gentle floral violet note and spice add dimension and interest. Smooth and velvety, it's layered with depth and concentration yet remains fresh and succulent. Balanced, structured and polished.

What could be better than a glass of wine and book by a cozy fireplace?

Crystallum Paradisum 2011, Harvey's Umhlanga, South Africa. Tasting notes: The nose is explosive and seductive all at once. Red fruits but intertwined with cinnamon, clove and exotic spices. The palate is very much old-school rhone, medium bodied, elegant and more savoury than the bouquet might suggest. Complex and balanced with bright acidity, the wine begs for food and yet is deep and interesting enough to be enjoyed alone.
