Clos Malverne Devonet 2007 Cape Blend Merlot Pinotage
This was new to us but we like both of those grape varieties and the label also notes that the wine is cask matured which also appeals. What is odd is that there is no note of the identity of the bottler which may be a bad sign.

They do have a website though.

The label describes this wine as having been lightly oaked. I'd have said very very lightly oaked myself. Also, I got the feeling that here the two varieties were rather working against each other and the result was definitely less than the sum of the parts. It was nevertheless drinkable but for the money I expect more.

Wine rating 5/10. Value rating: below average
