Reviews and Ratings

Glenda rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The Pepper Pot is an unusual blend of Syrah, Mourvedre and Tannat created by David Finlayson, one of South Africa's renowned wine makers and formerly wine maker of the Hess Family Estate farm, Glen Carlou.
Plenty of white pepper aromas here and on the palate, piquant blueberry flavours dominate with allspice and white pepper.
Over two nights we tried various food matches and the winner hands down was a traditional local sausage, made with coriander and allspice, boerewors.
Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

I found this South African wine to be quite tasty, and not over-powering like some wines from that region. Lots of pepper aromas and pepper on the palate, but also blueberry and bold ripe fruits. With Syrah and Tannat, you can expect a structured wine with classic tannins. Good value

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
