Whoops, this wine is out of stock

We've found the perfect replacement…

Arabella Pinotage 2018

Theoretically it makes no sense at all. Practically it’s just scrumptious!

    • Who'da thought it... a big dollop of gutsy Shiraz can be brought to life by a tiny smidgeon of peachy pure Viognier.
    • Big, rich, ripe bramble and damson fruit with lashings of oak are given a soft, silky finish by the addition of the Viognier with its hint of white peach acting as the perfect foil to the peppery undertones.
    • Angel funding helped Stephen to buy the grapes, so it's incredible quality for a very reasonable price... no wonder 91% of you would happily buy it again!
