Rickety Bridge has undergone extensive renovation across the board, thanks to new British owner Duncan Spence. The experienced Wynand Grobler has been winemaker since 2007 and he has some real Rhone-style gems in his portfolio. This delicious blend comprises 8% Shiraz, 23% Cinsaut , 20% Mourvèdre , 9% Tannat , 8% Grenache, 2% Viognier.
It is silky soft on the palate with supple tannins and notes of white pepper, blackcurrant, roast red peppers and purple flowers on the nose. Layered complexity on the flavour, which is medium bodied but deep and broad. Serve with slow-roast lamb or even a tasty array of cheeses.
