Edgebaston The Pepper Pot 2012
89 pts Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar
Bright ruby. Slightly reduced aromas of black raspberry, smoke and game are lifted by a peppery quality. Fat, sweet and rich, but with sound acidity giving shape and verve to the concentrated black fruit and gunflint flavors. Finishes with a solid tannic spine. This makes the 2011 seem a bit dry by comparison. An excellent value.
Varietal composition: 72% Syrah, 7% Mourvedre. 7% Tannat, 7% Grenache, 7% Cinsault
The Pepper Pot. Inspired by a unique culinary traditions of our rainbow nation to bring you a heady, yet harmonious blend of plucky pepper, piquant spice and radiant red berry flavours. Proving that in wine, as it is in life, the whole is far greater than the sum of its parts.
