South Africa’s vineyards are mostly situated in the Western Cape near the coast. This is the southernmost region of the African continent, and has a Mediterranean type climate and diverse soils perfectly suited to quality grape production.
Specially selected grapes were harvested, destemmed and inoculated with yeast. The wine was allowed to ferment until the desired sugar level was reached and then fortied with natural wine spirits to stop the fermentation. The resulting wine was then matured in French oak barrels.
Extended wood maturation resulted in a beautiful amber colour with orange zest, dried fruit, caramel and nuttiness on the nose. This full flavoured wine explodes with fruit, marzipan and toffee on the palate, with a well balanced sweet finish.
