Product information

A luxurious, full-bodied red packed with red berries and plums - great with red meat or pasta with rich sauces. Lots of red berry fruit and even fruit cake flavours. Great on its own, excellent at parties and remarkable with takeaway curries!


More about this product;


Nutty as a fruit cake this fella. Seriously. Take a decent gulp and you'll be delighted by the lovely Christmas cake and Brazil nut flavours just bubbling under the surface of this South African cracker. It's an impressively complex blend of three big, big grape varieties which in the wrong hands could have ended up as a bottled bun-fight. But winemaker Bruce Jack has ensured the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz work together seamlessly, bringing out all the big grape flavours with lots of enticing little extras like chocolate and vanilla and oak. Of course this Kumala will play nice with most red meat but try it with a mid-weight curry too, it's a real eye-opener.
