An Average South African Merlot is a Good Match with an Average Pork Goulasch

We did another Slow Cook Book recipe – Pork Goulasch.  The pork is cooked in paprika, ground caraway seeds, cider vinegar and stock. Tomatoes are added at the end.  It tasted OK, but was nothing special.  We paired it with a bottle of Stellar Organics Merlot 2010, a South African red that was a gift from some friends.  A fairly ordinary wine but a good match with the Goulasch. There were plenty of redcurrant flavours, coffee notes and a jammy, spicy finish.
