The Rubaiyat is De Grendel’s flagship wine, first made in 2006 when cellar master Charles Hopkins was asked by Sir David Graaff to make an 'iconic' wine for the Estate. Perfumed violets on the nose precede luscious blackcurrant and black cherry aromas underpinned by nuances of cedar, graphite and tobacco leaf. Exceptionally elegant pomegranate and plum unfurl on the palate, nuanced by hints of fruitcake and spice with a bold tea leaf tannin finish.
