Bartinney is set on the dramatic slopes of Botmaskop alongside the Helshoogte Pass overlooking the picturesque Banhoek Valley in Stellenbosch. Established in 1912, Bartinney has been in the Jordaan family since 1953. Now Rose and Michael Jordaan tend to the 28 hectare farm, with a vision to create excellent wines and reawaken the charm of the historic land.
The wine’s deep ruby colour is youthful for its age. Typical Cabernet Sauvignon aromas, specifically perfumed blackcurrant and tobacco, are present in moderate intensity. Firm and well-structured tannins have been extracted during post-fermentation skin contact. Bramble and blackcurrant flavours are layered with earthy and tobacco notes to result in an exquisitely complex wine with further aging potential.
This wine will pair beautifully with roast chicken with generous rosemary and garlic.
