Wine Not! Wednesday Featuring Inception Deep Layered Red
It’s Wednesday and I have an amazing Red wine to share with you. When you love something do you have a deep passion for it? Well that is how I feel about today’s Wine Not! Wednesday Featuring Inception Deep Layered Red. Inception deep layered red is the perfect blend of 81% Shiraz, 10% Petit Verdot, and 9% Mourvedre. It was produced in South Africa a country that knows alot about making great wines i.e Two Oceans. Inception is fairly new to the South African category of Wines, it is crafted from handpicked grapes and harvested from the complexly- weathered darling valley floor. The grapes were picked at optimal ripeness for maximum fruit expression and a soft balance. Then fermented in stainless steel tanks with yeast strains.
After the grapes have fermented(meaning to balance and smooth), the wine is then matured in 300L Oak barrels for just over 12 months. This was my first time trying Inception and it has the most extraordinary taste I have ever experienced. Inception Deep Layered Red is a medium bodied Ruby red wine bursting with taste. When I took my first sip I could taste hints of Vanilla and Mocha. I could also smell and taste fruity flavours of berries and a slight oak taste which is from maturing the wines in Barrels. Inception is also has a slight spice note to it, which is why it pairs nicely with red meats like steak or chicken dishes. I paired mine with Honey Garlic chicken thighs and it was really great. Overall Inception is really smooth on the palate so even if you didn’t want to eat a meal with it. You could also just drink it on its own. In terms of other wines that are similar in tastes and bodies two wines comes to mind for me and they are Apothic Red and Bodacious Cabernet Sauvignon
So if you are looking for a some what sweet bottle of Red definitely check out Inception. Until Next Wednesday…. Cheers! Its happy hour somewhere!
