Region: Devon Valley Stellenbosch
Louisvale is situated at the foot of the majestic Stellenbosch mountains in the verdant Devon Valley. The lush, manicured vineyards produce outstanding wines. Louisvale, one of the pioneers of Chardonnay in South Africa, is still solely planted to Chardonnay. This delightful red wine is one of our best finds of the year. It is a harmonious, elegant Bordeaux-style blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Maturation took place over one year is French oak barrels. It has intense fruit aromas of blackcurrant and plum, supported by toasted oak. It is medium to full bodied and very smooth. Enjoy this wine over the next five years.
