Deux Frères, Liberté, Stellenbosch, 2015
Another knockout red from Deux Frères, ye gods Retief du Toit whispers all the right things to these cultivars and seems especially gifted with Rhone varietals. His straight Mourvèdre and ‘Rhone blend’ had me at their mercy and it’s the Shiraz which shines through in this.
It’s actually a Cab/Shiraz blend, a pairing which can be the vinous equivalent of Marriage Story, yet thankfully this is a match made in heaven. Stewed prune, plum & blackberries, rosemary, thyme, licorice, black olive tapenade & mint
