    I got given this bottle of wine by a lady friend at Christmas and it was an excellent accompaniment to my supper of baked trout last night.The label says what grape types are used but I have not been able to find out in what proportions.The label also says 'aromas of ripe peaches and juicy nectarines 'and I would certainly agree.There is plenty ...

  • Kumala Eternal Shiraz Cabernet Savignon 2010


    Used with a Vinturi wine aerator. Shared with a freind after dinner, after aeration the wine did improve however still very tannic. The primary flavour is plum and with a finish of blackcurrent. Overall not a very complex wine, very dry and crisp, would potentially pair well with beef. Read More

  • Kumala Pinotage Blend Pinotage-Shiraz 2009


    Sharp and thin, leaves a bitter taste - not what I was expecting. "Budget" wines were better quality last year (i.e. this is 3 for £12). I would not recommend this wine, as it does not suit my palate. Read More

  • Kumala Western Cape Merlot Ruby Cabernet 2008


    Too young to show any real oomph. I picked up some nice sourness on the nose but the palate was lacking any boldness. Not bad but could use a year or two probably. Read More

    I found this wine nothing special and quite bitter...the aftertaste is not pleasant. I will probably use the rest of the bottle for cooking. Read More

  • Kumala Pinotage Blend 2003


    I'm not a wine expert....so excuse my lack of lingo or proper protocols. This is a light to medium blended red. The first sniff soft berry, raisin with a touch of floral (lavender is my best guess). Taste is fruity - blackberry, plum and a touch of amber/leather all come through.Overall this wine is a nice drinking wine - the kind of bottle t... Read More
