    Stellenbosch Vineyards Right Bank Bordeaux Blend 2018

    R 650.00

     

    58.2 % Merlot / 13.6 % Cabernet Sauvignon / 13.6 % Petit Verdot / 13.6 % Cabernet franc

    Grapes were harvested optimally ripe and hand sorted in our Flagship cellar to ensure only the best fruit is used for fermentation. After two days of cold maceration the juice was inoculated with a selected yeast strain.  The fermented wine was hand pressed with a small 1 ton basket press and transferred to barrels where malolactic fermentation took place for three weeks. The wine was then racked to barrels for maturation.  

    The wine was matured for 24 months in French oak barrels of which 55% was first-fill. 

    It took us more than a year to perfect this blend and it shows with fragrant and intense sweet fruit aromas to entice the senses.  The wine boasts fine, mouth coating tannins which contribute to a long, sophisticated finish.   

    The elegance and fruit intensity of the The Right Bank makes it delicious to drink now but with its great body and structure it will improve with cellaring up to 2027.
