soils, served as the fuse to their vision. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec confirmed its affinity to the ancient soils, dated as being somewhere between 750 000 and 1.5 million years old. Planted at high density, these vines adhere to the exquisite struggle; encouraging smaller vines, lower yields and highly concentrated fruit. Vilafonté wines are exclusively from grapes grown on their property. The cooling maritime influence has created a Mediterranean climate – wet and cold winters, paired with long dry summers that create an extremely favourable environment for the production of fine wine.
Vilafonté Series C 2021
“Series C 2021 represents a vivid expression of our unique vilafonté site. It exhibits a dark red-black coloured centre and brightly ruby-rimmed edge. Opening unhurriedly it reveals a layered aromatic palette with notes of incense and violet blossom that segue to delicious black plum, fresh black currants and Boysenberries. Subtle hints of sandalwood, sappy juniper and blonde tobacco gradually emerge with further time in the glass. The palate is luscious, with silky
tannins and linear progression that finish with great presence and length. Generous fruit expression adds dimension to this elegant and impeccably well-balanced wine.” – Winemaker
