Usana, The Luck of the Gambler 750ml 2018South Africa, Stellenbosch
'This wine has a spicy, dry entry. With time it developes in the glass to display rhubarb, raspberry and grapefruit. Rounded off with savoury and umami notes. It is a versatile food wine. Its freshness will pair well with fresh seafood but the umami notes add another dimension into Asian inspired foods.' – Winemaker
