4G. 2015 ‘Venetia’s Heart’
“The ‘First Growth of South Africa’ from one of the best vintages in decades.”
The quality of the grapes are exceptional with intense colour, freshness and great flavour. The 2015 consists of a blend of Syrah, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc; selected from five different vineyards across the Western Cape. Extreme care was taken when harvesting. The grapes were hand-picked and hand de-stemmed and meticulously sorted twice prior to gentle manual crushing. The blend spent 18 months in partially new French oak barrels resulting in a multi-faceted bouquet. A world class wine with immense character, earthy minerality and delicate richness in an impressive lingering finish. A perfect marriage of intensity and elegance.
Can cellar until 2050 or longer.
First place in Zurich Blind Tasting with 100 other entered wines, including Cheval Blanc, Pingus and Penfolds Grange.
