Brothers JP and Pierre Winshaw have released a new set of wines under the Winshaw Vineyards label. The wines are inspired by their great-grandfather, Dr. William Charles Winshaw, who started the Stellenbosch Farmers’ Winery, and their grandfather, Bill Winshaw, who continued the growth of this company. The Winshaw Family Farm is located in Klein Welmoed, Stellenbosch where, in addition to wine, Pierre and JP also produce pasture-reared beef, lamb and eggs.
Winshaw Family Vineyards Bill Winshaw Blend 2018
Tasting note: 94P Platter’s Guide
45% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 10% Malbec blend
Brilliant ruby red colour, Gorgeous red fruit spectrum showing on nose, echoing the Cab Franc presence, 24 months in oak, 76% new, bringing an inner warmth and a subtle Lindt raspberry choc tone. Perfectly ripe varietal components make up a beautiful whole, integrating well already. The tannins are ripe and the acidity is on point, convincing us that this very Bordeaux-like wine will mature well until it reaches its’ plateau in 2030.
Roast lamb with a thyme infused meat jus.
