M’hudi Family Boutique Foro’s Legacy 2019
A multi-layered, complex and richly textured red with blackberry, cherry and dark plum, alongside, clove, black pepper and woody herb notes.
Foro’s legacy is a Cape blend, typically made of a majority Shiraz, with Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon in support, and splashes of Malbec and Mourvèdre, in particular contributing colour and structure to the wine and a delicious dried herb note to the palate. The nose is lifted with black pepper, cedar, biltong spice, cherry and plum, while the palate is rich and bold, with a complex clove, mace, coriander and dark chocolate profile. As with each of the M’hudi reds, this is already approachable, thanks to those ripe sweet tannins and the generous deep, dark fruit flavours but there is time ahead, too, with leather, game and more spice to come. This would be excellent with a gamey barbecued rump steak or venison or, equally, a rich blue cheese.
