Joostenberg, The Family Blend Red 750ml 2018South Africa, Paarl
'In these straitened times, how nice to find a wine offering more than a little interest at the modest price of R115 a bottle. A blend of 51% Syrah, 27% Cinsault, 12% Mourvèdre, 8% Touriga Nacional, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Merlot, The Family Blend 2018 from Joostenberg in Paarl has a nose showing a hint of tarry reduction before red and black berries plus hints of herbs and pepper while the palate is medium bodied with fresh acidity and crunchy tannins. Entirely pleasant to drink.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 90/100
'This is a medium-bodied, blended red wine made for family and friends. It’s a wine for any occasion and drinks well with or without food. The wine is certified as “organic” by the European based auditors, Control Union.' – Winemaker
