ONE OF OUR NON-SOUTH AFRICAN WINES (because we think it is special!)
6th Generation Italian Settlers. 4 Generation still work at the vineyard, including Virginia Stagnari the wine maker.
Bright garnet colour with a nose like grandma's make-up box; violet, waxy, with a powdery sensation at the back of the nose. The mouth delivery on the violet aroma's and brings fresh clean cranberry and field strawberry flavours.
Shiraz/Mouvedre/Grenache A well-balanced and complex blend. Named after winemaker's father, Toeloe Basson. A strong, full bodied character leading the way. Aged for 14 months in French oak.
White Blend Sauvignon Blanc/Chardonnay (unwooded) made by the Hamilton Russell family. Bottle age adds complexity and harmony. Chardonnay is fermented in clay amphoras. Food friendly, textured, mineral vitality and savoury length.
