Spookfontein Phantom 2016
This Bordeaux-style blend is dominated by Merlot. Cassis fruit such as blackberries and cherries are prevalent on the nose.The palate reveals a good oaking regime (18 months in French Oak barrels), balanced by fruit and a fine tannin structure.
Smooth, full-bodied, great Bordeaux blend of Merlot,Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine has matured well and is a good easy drinking wine, quite enjoyable. Good value for money
Personal Food pairing:
I had this wine with an Oxtail dish which was rich and the wine held its own surprisingly,so could be good with game meat dishes too.
