The Oddbins Take

A saxophone in a lonely back street. An early morning trumpet fanfare. A piano tinkling in a shadowy bar. There's something pure in those sounds. Unapologetic. But music is about connection. Bringing things together. While they might be able to hold their own, there's always the sense an instrument playing alone is calling out for friends.


And so! Grapes. Brilliant stand alone performers, unashamed. But now and again, don't you feel, they just want to join the band? If it wasn't what they wanted, it's unlikely this reunion of classic Bordeaux varieties would hit such high notes. Blueberry, cassis, tobacco, cedar. Ah one, two, ah one two three four...

The Marvelous Wines range started as a one-off project for Yardstick winemaker Adam Mason in 2009. His aim was to create a bistro-style wine for his local restaurant, which has since culminated in the creation of a range of blends packed full of South African energy.

Marvelous Blue offers cool, sumptuous aromas of blueberries, cassis and pipe tobacco that are supported by a note of cedar wood. A thread of acidity is apparent on the palate, where savoury and herbal notes are offset by dense sweet fruit flavours.
