Russo Bordeaux Blend 2008


A founding member of the Durbanville Boutique Wine Association, Russo Wines is a family owned boutique winery with just 4ha under vine. Small, picturesque and sitting in prime terrior, they currently make just one wine, a stunning Bordeaux blend, in tiny amounts… just 23 barrels in total.


This delightful blend is the second vintage produced and is drinking extremely well after four years perfect aging at the Estate. Cabernet Franc performed superbly in the slightly cooler 2008 season, therefore at 31%, it is the leading varietal with Cabernet Sauvignon making up another 30% and the balance coming from Merlot and Petit Verdot. Don't be fooled by the small producer or small levels of production… this wine recently caused a stir at Frogitt & Vonkel when we did a comparative tasting against Meerlust Rubicon, and without doubt the Russo was the more seemless and characterful wine.
