This Southwest-facing slope is located on one of Vondeling’s highest and most temperate slopes. The roots burrow deep into nutrient-poor, well weathered granite soils. The wine is an intense, dark, ruby red.
A fragrant wine with abundant blackcurrant, liquorice and sweet cassis. Soft, smoky oak derived from eighteen monthys maturation in 300-litre barrels, lends an exotic hint to the nose. Complex and moderately tannic, the wine is elegant and balanced. The fruit component is in harmony with the structure and the flavours are fresh and moreish.
Slow-roasted lamb with garlic, rosemary, roast potato and vegetables would be an ideal match, or even venison, ostrich and guinea fowl. Drink now until 2017. Limited quantities from this single vineyard site.
