Roodeberg Reserve, a newcomer to the KWV brand, is the ideal winter wine companion. Previously only available in selected international markets, this red blend can now be enjoyed by local wine lovers, too.
Intricate layers of red plum, blueberries, crushed herbs and tobacco leaf with hints of dark chocolate and oak are rounded off by soft, silky tannins. This consummate full-bodied blend stands up well to hearty winter dishes.
It is also a wonderful wine for a weekend of cocooning with comforting warm winter desserts, such as foodie Elmarie Berry’s spicy pumpkin donuts drizzled in dark chocolate.
