  • Roodeberg 1949  Stellenbosch  South Africa

This is a deep, ruby coloured, concentrated red blend shows prominent aromas of dark cherry, blackcurrant and vanilla. On the palate cinnamon, sweet spice and ripe, juicy dark fruit together with a firm tannin structure, ensures good length and an enduring finish.

Grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness. After de-stem, they were cold soaked for two days to extract more fruit character and enhance colour. The wine was inoculated with specially selected yeast strains and fermented until dry. Free-run juice was racked to barrel where it underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was then racked from the lees and returned to barrel for 18 months of maturation.

Recommendation This wine can be enjoyed on its own or with a variety of flavourful meat dishes.

94 points Greg Sherwood MW

"Wonderfully seductive aromatics of violets and lilac, lush ripe red and black berry fruits and a creamy, bruléed top note of brown toast and roasted coffee beans. The palate texture is simply drop dead gorgeous with a cool, fleshy, dreamy harmony of tart black plum, black cherry, black currant, salty black liquorice and a subtle leafy sapidity on the finish that adds plenty of interest."
