I really liked the 2015 Botmaskop, Delaire Graff Estate, from Mövenpick.
It’s an intensive, spicy, fruity and a very elegant wine. It has a beautiful red ruby color with a rich bouquet of chocolate, blackberries and cherry notes. I think, it’s a nice wine to enjoy during the Christmas time as a solo refreshment and as a accompaniment to dinner.
