Wine of Origin, from Western Cape Province of Paarl and surrounding areas in South Africa: The weather here is cold wet winters, and hot dry summers.The vineyards are planted on South West and South Eastern slopes in Paarl region and are trellised onto a 5 wire Perold system. The vinyards are irrigated, especially when there is a lack of rain fall and the harvested begins mid-February and finishes in March. The juice is tank fermented on there grape skins, for two weeks, and then after the pressing the wine is then placed in barrels for the malolactic 'slow' fermation. The wine is intense in rich purple colour, the bouquet is full of ripe damson/plum fruit with chocolate and figgy overtones. Fascinating, concentrated fruit fills the mouth, an evenly balanced wine, just savore a mouthfull before swallowing. Enjoy with any red meat dishes.
