First thing that had me intrigued was the name, and this being a South African label i was sure there was a story behind this. Apparently the name is a tribute to the three thousand ladybirds that are released each year into the vineyards to combat the bugs and hence bypasses the need of pesticides.
This wine is predominantly Merlot along with Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot.
On the nose : it has a fruity aroma, has a freshness of Cherries and there is a hint of Spice.
On the Palate : this is full bodied wine with a lush fruity taste of Plum and Cherries and medium finish with a hint of oak.
This was an excellent wine and paired well with steak and a rack of lamb.
Stellenbosch is perhaps the most famous wine-producing region in South Africa. The town, in Western Cape's Coastal Region, is steeped in history and is home to the country’s best-known wine estates. Cabernet Sauvignon is the region’s most prized grape variety, often found with Merlot as part of a Bordeaux Blend. Stellenbosch is just 25 miles (40km) east of Cape Town.
