WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES

Excellent deep ruby red.  Nose is reminiscent of dark berry fruit with hints of black currant cassis and mint. A well-balanced medium to full bodied wine with ripe fine tannins well integrated oak and a rich lingering finish.

VITICULTURE AND VINIFICATION NOTES

Grapes picked at optimum ripeness selected prior to harvest from premium vineyards from the Stellenbosch region. Cool Mediterranean climate, loamy sand and weathered granite soil type. Vines are trellised on a 5-wire hedge system. Grapes were harvested at 24 - 26ºB, and cold soaked for two days prior to primary fermentation. Fermented until dry at 24 - 27ºC, extraction of colour and varietal aromas by means of pumpover and delastage in static red fermenters. Malolactic fermentation and maturation takes place in stainless steel tank with 2g/lt of selected medium toast French oak staves for approximately 8 months. The cold soaking period as well as a slower yeast strain used during primary fermentation results in a well balanced wine with beautiful varietal characters and good finish.

FOOD SUGGESTIONS

Serve with Tzatziki roast beef, or a rack of lamb with sautéed or pickled vegetables.
