Description

Situated in the Franschhoek valley where vineyards have been planted since the late 1600s, when exiled French Huguenots brought their viticultural know-how to their new home in South Africa.

The grapes were harvested in the cool early morning at 25°B, gently crushed and fermented in half-ton open-top fermenters. The grapes were punched down by hand six times a day and fermented until dry. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel and was matured for 18 months in second-fill French oak to produce a well-integrated, complex profile.

An opulent, full-bodied wine with supple, vibrant fruit and tannins. Spicy, white pepper, smoky aromas pervade a ripe, fruit-driven profile. Pairs well with beef, lamb, curry or spicey dishes.

GlenWood donate the profits from the sale of this wine to Rhino Revolution NPOSouth Africa is home to 80% of the world’s rhino population and Rhino Revolution, established in 2011, works to rescue and rehabilitate orphaned rhinos as well as helping protect exisiting rhino populations.
