Cape Town Insiders’ Review Of The Wine
We love the ethos behind Stellar Winery, they produce delicious organic vegan-friendly wines that are fair trade certified and they offer a number of no-added-sulphate wines.
We tried the Running Duck Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon/Pinotage blend on a cold, winter’s night. It’s a rich, fruity, deeply satisfying wine that would pair well with strong flavours such as a good potjie or lamb roast. For us, it worked just as well by itself and we thoroughly enjoyed this bottle.
