Stellenbosch Ridge

Intense ruby red colour. Aromas of ripe plum and fresh cherry are prominent with subtle hints of forest floor. On the palate the wine is full and well-structured, with a great follow-through of the ripe fruit onto the palate. This wine shows elegant integration and a balanced, velvet finish. The Stellenbosch vineyards where the grapes are sourced from have a mixture of Tukulu, Clovelly, Oakleaf and Hutton soils. Deep and red in colour, the soil shows good water retention, and is a rich vineyard soil. Soil moisture is carefully monitored and supplemented by drip irrigation. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrels and the wine was then left in 40% new French oak for 18 months. The wine is then blended and bottled, and only after a further 6 months of bottle-maturation is the wine released.
