From The Roof – The Matrix Bordeaux Red Blend 2017
A Merlot-driven blend, from fruit entirely grown in Stellenbosch. Rich, deep and exceptionally smooth. Boutique wine at its best.
Formerly known as “Mount Granite” (sold by Frogitt & Vonkel) this is the first wine released by Du Toit Family Wines under their new brand “From the Roof”. The name coming as a literal translation to English from French of “Du Toit”.
This is a “Stellenbosch” blend. Driven by Merlot (50%) with Cabernet Sauvignon (40%) and Petit Verdot (10%). The wine is deep and rich, warming and reassuring. It’s smooth an intergrated, having been aged in a selection of French Oak at new, second and third fill.
The aim here was to produce a blend that showcased Stellenbosch’s premium terroir, but in a wine that can be drunk now. We think they’ve succeeded.
