Stellar Organics- 2012
Harmonious blend of 50% Pinotage and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. Ruby red in colour, with a really generous smoky red fruit bouquet that's so typical of Pinotage. On the palate the super soft brambly damson flavours are warming and attractive, with some leathery spice on the finish. Stellar estate is situated in the Western Cape, Namaqualand area, on the way up to Namibia in the north. A large organic farm who also grow table grapes, and benefit from having refridgeration on site to keep the fruit cool which is a huge advantage for winemaking too (and for making No Sulphur Added wines) which are also a speciality here. A common site on the farm are the large flocks of Runner ducks whom roam or patrol around, feeding on the vineyard pests. Leaders in fair trade initiatives, and sustainability the Stellar vineyards have grown to become a large, and well loved organic brand. Try this red with a mushroom stroganoff, or with lighter BBQ foods.

Stellar Winery is situated 275 kilometres north of Cape Town on the road to Namibia. It is a joint venture between four farmers and the cellar. The cellar processes about 900 tonnes of organic grapes from farms straddling the northern boundary of the Olifants river wine region and Namaqualand. Working closely with the farms, winemaker Dudley Wilson (ex-Flagstone), produces a great range of wines.
