Lozärn Carménère 2020
“ Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to taste the first Carménère completely grown and produced in South Africa.”
In 2012 winemaker, Salome was enjoying a fine Chilean Carménère and needless to say, it was love at first sip. This led to the planting of a Carménère vineyard two years later.
This is, as far as they can ascertain – the first single vineyard of Carménère in South Africa.
Now on its 5th vintage it is showing better than ever. Frogitt & Vonkel have complete exclusivity on this wine with only a few bottles being exported to Denmark.
The wine spent a total of 12 months in new French oak barrels giving it a beautiful deep purple colour and mocha aftertaste.
Still young for a Carménère, but already drinking superbly.
