The Oddbins Take

Good jazz is all about balance. Blending. Just the right amount of this, just the right amount of that. It's also about taking a little creative risk now and then. Of course, that could mean things go wrong. But when things go right, wow! That just gets your feet tapping.


Take this ensemble of Mediterranean varieties. Good soloists, all. But brought together under the baton of an inspired winemaker, well. You better get your dancing shoes. And, of course, creativity is nothing without structure. So, let the old bush vine Cinsault handle that, while the other players go to town. Cherry, rose petals and chalk. Music to the tongue!

Marvelous Red has a light, clean garnet appearance with light rose petal aromas. Cherry runs throughout the clean palate and provides a slight savoury bite. The wine also offers a chalky texture to the palate, enticing the next sip.

    Good Hope, Good Wine - Mixed Case of 6 Wines

    £80.25
    Not quite as in-your-face as wines from Australia, but much more approachable and easier to understand than those of France, South African wines run the gamut from the staunchly traditional to the fiercely modern.
