Edgebaston, The Berry Box, South Africa, 2010

This is an interesting red blend from South Africa, with the Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot grape varietals, all included.  So, if you are anything like me, the description of the blend alone, is enough to get you interested.

In your glass, the Berry Box wine is a dark red, with a nose that reminds you of raspberry and blackberry.  On the palate, you will pick up all of Berry Box fruity flavours that it has to offer. The tannins are moderate, bringing forth a slight sweetness of the berry flavours, coupled with a light to medium finish.

This wine is perfect for the wine drinker who prefers lighter wines, with low tannic values.

The Edgebaston the Berry Box retails at the LCBO for $16.95

Our score: 3/5
