Crafted only in exceptional vintages, this signature blend is a fitting tribute to the late Dr Julius Laszlo, one of the true wine pioneers and innovative Cellarmaster at Die Bergkelder who catapulted South African winemaking into the international league in the 1980s.
Fleur du Cap Laszlo 2012 is a rich, powerful blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Shiraz and is the culmination of meticulous barrel selection and blending trials. The crowning glory of the winemaking team headed by Cellarmaster Wim Truter, this full-bodied red has complex aromas of tobacco, vanilla, ripe prunes, blackcurrants and cherries that meld seamlessly on the palate with integrated oak nuances. It ends in a long, lingering finish with hints of berries and oak spices. A firm tannic backbone ensures great ageing potential with further maturation.
