Named for the large amount of ladybirds buzzing around the place in the organic vineyard, his Bordeaux blend from Stellenbosch really packs a punch.
It’s Cabernet Sauvignon dominant at 33%, which gives lots of acidity, tannin structure and black fruit aroma. The 27% Merlot is giving ripe red and black fruit aromas and makes the wine full-bodied. Generous amounts of Petit Verdot are further enhancing the depth of tannins and body of the wine. 15% Cabernet Franc gives a green bramble aroma and refreshes the tannins, while the 7% Malbec adds length to the tannins. A powerful wine which at this price is cracking value. Will benefit a decant before serving.
