This luscious combo of spicy Shiraz and blackberry rich Malbec is full of smooth fruity fun. It’s a new release from the Gabb family’s Mount Rozier estate in premium Stellenbosch. A gorgeously moreish red, with juicy ripe fruit and freshness.
Shiraz and Malbec are grapes we normally associate with Australia and Argentina. House of Fun shows just how delicious they are when grown in Cape sunshine. It’s from the Gabb family, whose 20 hectare farm, Mount Rozier, is named after Annie Rozier, a flower merchant who in the 19th century harvested flowers growing on the hills surrounding Stellenbosch. Though her business flourished, these hills have long been planted with vines. On the Schapenberg slopes above Somerset West, near Cape Town, Mount Rozier enjoys commanding views, undulating slopes, varied soils and an idyllic microclimate. It’s a natural amphitheatre in which to produce world class wines. Some are all elegance and finesse, others like this are packed full of fruit and fun.
"Smooth Shiraz Malbec. First bottle of this and it’s gone straight into our top five. Exceptional"
