Idiom Cape Blend 2018

The Idiom Wines Cape Blend is a velvety and opulent red wine made with the Cape’s own grape Pinotage blended alongside Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Shiraz grape varieties. The wines were matured separately for 10 months in 45% new 225 Litre French and American oak, before being blended and left to marry for a further 2 to 4 months. Rich and intriguing aromas and intriguing flavours suggestive of black forest cake with notes of cigar box and ripe cherries. Soft tannins, lush ripe red fruits and a lively finish are hallmarks of this wine that is a signature of South African excellence.

We aim to to have your delivery with you within 5-7 working days of receiving your order, but often it can be much sooner. If you need your order by a certain date please get in touch and we'll do our best to get it to you as required.

 

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
