2016 Bushell Red Blend, Sumaridge Estate, Upper Hemel-en-Aarde
Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec harvested and matured independently and skillfully brought together in this harmonious blend of dark fruit flavours. Mulberry and black currant abounds backed by a meaty complexity, supple mouth feel and palate length which exemplifies the benefits of a long hang time. This is born of the cool maritime air that caresses our vineyards and enhanced by cooler south facing slopes from which these grapes are sourced. This well made wine is both approachable and has substantial depth whilst displaying a youthful charm, indicating its potential longevity.
A beefy wine, at home with red meat, spices and all things stewed.

Sumaridge Wine Estate, proudly owned by the Bellingham Turner family, lies gracefully between two imposing mountain ranges in the Western Cape’s Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley - aptly named “Heaven and Earth” - with commanding views stretching to Walker Bay on the Atlantic Ocean.
The cool maritime breezes are key to the elegance of the estate’s wines. The perfect marriage of exceptional location, climate and soil, coupled with expert wine crafting, gives birth to signature wines that are distinctively elegant, ample in body and complex in flavour.
