Vilafonté Series M 2021


Region: Stellenbosch

Tasting note:

“The Series M 2021 possesses a regal, dignified character. Beautifully nuanced, showing an attractive tension and energy. It displays a great density of red to black colour and magenta-tinged rim. Seductive aromas of cranberry and ripe cherry fluently segue to lush notes of black raspberry, blueberry and subtle dried thyme, owing to the Merlot and Malbec components of this blend. Lifted rose petal, blonde tobacco, cacao and warm orange rind add layers of complexity. ” – Winemaker

“Is wine art? Chris de Vries of Vilafonté is inclined to think so, viewing wine “a composition” in the sense of being a creative work. De Vries, who joined the high-profile Paarl property in October 2016, has bought a deft touch to bear and has clearly made the most of all the celebrated 2021 vintage had to offer. The Cab-driven Seies C 2021 (R1,990 a bottle) rated 96 when it came to market last year, and now the Series M 2021 has been released. This vintage of Series M sees Merlot to the fore at 41% followed by 35% Malbec, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Cabernet Franc while maturation lasted 22 months in 225-litre barrels, of which 26% were new. Alcohol: 14%. The nose is fragrant showing red berries plus subtle notes of violets, potpourri and dried herbs while the palate is refined and seamless – succulent fruit, vibrant acidity and fine, densely packed tannins, the finish gently savoury. Restrained and elegant, the oak well integrated” – CE
