dry // De Trafford // South Africa // Stellenbosch // Red Wines

Im Glas ein impulsantes dichtes Rot. Das Bukett enthält ein sattes Aroma von Blaubeeren, Früchtebrot und Gewürzen. Am Gaumen dicht bepackt. Geben Sie ihm ein wenig Luft, damit er seine volle Frucht und Komplexität auspielen kann. Bald zeigen sich Aromen von dunklen, reifen Beeren.

The vines are close planted ( 5000 to 7500 vines / hect.) The best barrels were selected for this reserve wine: TASTING NOTES Impressive deep red / purple colour.

Harvest date : 26 / 2 / 03 - 7 / 3 / 03 PRODUCTION Handpicking into 20 kg lugboxes. 100% destemming and gentle crushing directly into open top fermenters.
