More about this wine from Western Cape, South Africa
This wine glows beautifully garnet ruby in the glass and is topped full of snappy bell peppers and wet earth notes. Crunchy deep brown soil and dried bay leaves, the fruit that is present is very dark with notes of black plums and black cherry. Packing serious tannins, this is the kind of wine that makes your insides feel like they are wearing flannel pajamas.

"Lekker" has several meanings. It is a common term for anything that is delicious or particularly luscious. In South Africa, it is most often used where Americans would say cool, great or awesome! Lekker Red is the perfect way to unwind after a long day. Light and fresh on the palate, this wine is like a bear hug for your soul.

These bold tannins are the perfect compliment to a gamey ostrich tartare.
