Dudley’s Stone Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot – 13.5%
Discovered in 1869, the ‘Star of South Africa’ was the first large diamond find in the country. On hearing of the stone, the Earl of Dudley purchased it, had it mounted on a head ornament with 95 smaller diamonds and gave it to the countess of Dudley – it was hence known as the ‘Dudley Diamond’.
This Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is vibrant ruby red colour, and combines aromas of ripe blackcurrants with flavours of juicy plum on the palate with smooth tannins and a rich long finish.
Serve at room temperature both as an aperitif, and to partner slow-cooked lamb shank in a red wine and rosemary jus…. or something similar !
