Gabrielskloof Five Arches Magnum
“4.5 Star Platter Rated Bordeaux blend in impressive Magnum bottles and wooden presentation box”
This ‘burster’ 4.5 Star Platter winner is the Reserve release of this farm’s famous Bordeaux Blend. Made up of 35% Cab Franc/ 31% Cab/ 22% Malbec/ 9% Petit Verdot and 3% Merlot it is faithful to classic Bordeaux blends of French origin. Selected fruit from sea-facing (thus lower yielding) vines is meticulously sorted and the very best placed into new French oak barriques (with a small amount of American and Hungarian, too, for flavour variety) for 12 months. The wine is then racked into second-fill French barrels for a further 10 months maturation, then bottled and aged for an additional 2 years in optimal conditions deep in the cellar.
