Buy Edgebaston The Pepper Pot
Made from grown grapes in the Stellenbosch, Paarl and Elgin regions, this wine is created to show the fresh, fruity and spice driven flavours of these Rhone varietals. The colour is youthful and purple/red. The nose is one of crushed black pepper, dark mulberry and mixed berry coulis.
Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2012 The Pepper Pot is a blend of 72% Syrah, and the rest Mourvedre, Cinsault and Tannat. It has a rounded red currant, cassis and violet-scented bouquet that becomes more floral with aeration. The palate is very sweet on the entry with dark cherries, blackberry and a touch of sour lemon, leading to a fleshy but uncomplicated finish. Fine. Drink now-2016. (Oct 2013)

R. P. 87 points-The 2008 The Pepper Pot is majority Syrah, with 32% Mourvedre and 10% Tannat. As intended, it delivers a pungent meld of pepper, spices, and sweet yet tartly-edged black fruits. A nutty, vegetal, spinach-like undertone and a mere hint of Mourvedre’s bloody meatiness add interest to this wine of modest body (despite 14% alcohol) and considerable refreshment.
