Skipskop JDT Red Blend 2022
“A one of a kind red blend named after the winemaker himself, Jonathan de Thierry. This is boutique brilliance without the price tag.”
A delicate and balanced wine made from an adventurous blend of Sangiovese, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo and a dash of Viognier.
All varietals are harvested from cool vineyards in a small Overberg town of Napier, with an exception of the Sangiovese which was harvested from the foot of the Swartberg Mountains in the Klein Karoo.
The wine was aged for 10 months in small French oak barrels resulting in a well-rounded, harmonious blend.
Aromas of raspberry and dark cherry are evident on the nose with gentle tannins on the palate.
The first vintage was released back in 2020 and has since sold exceptionally well in Kenya and the UK.
